Benched again!

It’s been a few weeks since we’ve had a run to benches workout. So, today we’re heading forward to the benches in a group run. It’s dark, damp, and chilly. However not chilly enough to wear long pants so sweaty is what we’re going to be.

Ab strength is important for balance, power, and stability. Every single day you’re either pulling, pushing, or pressing as a human being. Groceries, kids, driving, stocking, mechanical work. You name it the core is critical for those daily functions.

Let’s not overlook the benefits of the core strength in athletic endeavors like running, jumping, rowing, weightlifting. All of these movements require more strength of the core to acquire speed, stability, dynamic explosive power to achieve your goals and not get hurt.
