A simple plan to strengthen your core http://www.kansascity.com/sports/outdoors/article79990857.html#storylink=rss Core strength, though it has been a hot term in the fitness industry for more than a decade, has unfortunately become synonymous with six-pack abs.

Or maybe he just likes it, so much so that he was part of the Oscar Last Men Running relay team at last year's Dallas Marathon. Every runner the team passed meant money for Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children.
