TRUE Core Strengthening: Creating Functional Stability

The following is a blend of two oft performed exercise techniques.

Step 1 is being able to simply execute a side plank to awaken, activate and engage the other non-AB 360 degrees of your true core.  This will create a more stable state to perform our movement throughout the day.

More stability.  More balance.  More strength.  Less chance of injury.

Step 2 is to add this variation of the old school “clam,” WHILE keeping the core engaged.  Marrying the two will translate to enhanced movement patterns throughout your daily routine; whether that be during training or just general movement as you navigate the day to day activities.

If you expect that body to continue to perform without a hitch (ESPECIALLY as we age), pay it some well deserved attention and watch it pay dividends on a performance and enjoyment basis.

Get after it.  You know how it goes…use it or lose it.  DON’t LOSE IT!
