This picture shows some of the core muscles in the back. These muscles
are layered over the deeper muscles of the inner core. There are also core
muscle groups in the front and on the sides of your body.
core muscles work together. When they contract at the same time, they help
stabilize your spine and hips to create a strong foundation for movement of
your body and to protect you from injury.
