Core Strength: The Foundation Of Fitness
Core strength is vital for all fitness and human movement events. Without a strong core, your progress is limited and you are more susceptible to injury. Core is more than just abs. It's everything from the chest down to your hips. And it's 360 degrees around your spine. Front, back and sides, including the lumbo-pelvic-hip complex. That's why my training includes core work in almost every exercise. Pushups and squats for example, have a huge core component as does almost everything. Some of the best core training exercises includes all planks, bridges, overhead lifts and rotational movements, back training. Once you master that concept, your performance will improve dramatically. When in doubt, do more core training.
