There is no doubt you should include a workout routine into your workout schedule focused on building strong abs and a healthy back. According to the National Institutes of Health, back pain will affect 8 out of 10 people at some point in life. Fortunately, most cases of back pain are not serious and can be prevented or treated with strong abs, a healthy back, improved posture and regular exercise. If you think about it, your abdominal and back muscles hold up everything above your waist; therefore, strengthening these muscles is of utmost importance. You have to be consistent though. Plan to incorporate core and healthy back workouts into your workout routine on a regular basis to stay out of the doctor’s office for “a bad back.” Knock out the Strong Abs, Healthy Back 20 Minute Circuit Workout Routine to stay out of the doctor’s office!
