Yoga has numerous benefits, both physical and mental, and straightening your core is one of them. These are some of the best and most effective poses to try if you want strong and sculpted abs.
Opening your chest and pushing your shoulder blades together is obviously a great way to stretch the entire front part of your body. At the same time, this exercise is targeting your abs and strengthening your core.
This pose is a bit more challenging than others, but the benefits it brings are unbelievable. While lifting your legs in the air, you’re engaging your abdomen and straightening your spine and neck at the same time.
Apart from being great for abs, cobra pose is good for straightening arms, chest and shoulders and for relieving back pain.
