Im kinda confused what is the proper way to enggage the core whilst performing running on the spot or doing any other workout. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers.😄

Flexing or tightening ur abs

Yeah just consciously being more aware of it and trying to engage it within your workouts

These guys are right. It's stupid exercise-jargon. Just means "tense your abs & mid-section".

Yeah but wit a lil practice I'm sure u can do it. U might try to jus make a habit of it thru out the day engage ur core for practice while doin random things good and keep up the hard work
