Your core makes up some of the most important muscles in your body-and no, we're not referring to "six-pack abs." We're talking about all the muscles that make up your midsection, including the rectus and transversus abdominis (front wall of the abdomen), quadratus lumborum (lower back muscles), spinal erectors and the obliques-and those are just the major muscle groups!

Gregorys Coffee opens its second DC location today near Dupont Circle.
