What does the term 'core muscles' refer to?

Core Muscles

Your core muscles make-up the muscles that are attached to the trunk of your body. This includes the muscles your abs, obliques, your shoulders, pectorals, and all the muscles on your back. Having a strong core can help improve exercise form and technique, thereby decreasing your risk of injury. Strong core muscles also improve your posture, which not only makes you look taller and leaner but can also help prevent overuse and injuries related to long hours at a desk or in front of a computer.
