Core strength & stability increases when you do exercises that promote how your core works. They aren’t sit ups and crunches, they decrease your strength and stability. Your core works best when you are moving and this is how you train it.
Core Strength Training
The best core training includes exercises that use your whole body. To make sure you get the most from these exercise means starting with the fundamental ones and moving onto whole body ones.
Fundamental Core Strength Exercises
These are exercises like the plank and side plank and you don’t need to hold them for minutes. A one minute plank and 30 second side plank is enough. Next you modify by lifting arms and legs, this makes your core muscles work harder.
The fundamental core exercises
There are more than planks and side planks, you need to cover your whole core, front, sides, back top and bottom. You also need to progress correctly and get the right technique. If you get the wrong technique your muscles don’t work as well. If you do the wrong exercise at the wrong time the same happen.
Core Strength & Stability Training
I’ve put together a core strength & stability training program that uses these fundamental exercises. It also progresses you at the right pace and gives you the correct technique. If you want to build real strength and stability take a look at our program.
“After the birth of my 3 children all by C Section, the 3rd did not heal Properly and I was left with a large separation and Hernia. I was very nervous starting exercise again and after a few sessions with Chris I felt much stronger and confident and only 3 months later my core is much stronger than it has ever been.”
