Core more than abs

"The core is defined as an anatomical box which consists of several muscle groups, such as the rectus abdominis at the front, the internal and external obliques on the lateral sides, the erector spinae, lumbar multifidus, and quadratus lumborum at the back, the diaphragm at the upper edge and the pelvic floor, and the iliac psoas"

We need strong muscles on all sides including our back (erector spinae, lumbar multifidus), our sides (internal oqlique, external oblique, quadratus lumborum), as well as the front (rectus abdominis) to keep us upright as we move, push, and pull.
