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
