Ultimate Core Training

If it weren’t for dead guys, we’d probably never have started doing crunches. That’s because for years, much of our knowledge of the way muscles work was based on the study of human cadavers. By looking at the anatomy of corpses, modern scientists figured that the function of our abdominal muscles must be to flex the spine. Which is exactly what you do when you perform a crunch, a situp, or any other move that requires you to round your lower back.

Product Description

As a result, these exercises were popularized as the best way to work your abs. But the reality is that your abs have a more critical function than flexing your spine: Their main job is to stabilize it. In fact, your midsection muscles are the reason your torso stays upright instead of falling forward due to gravity. So your abs and lower back actually prevent your spine from flexing. The upshot is that if you want better results from your core workout, you need to train your abs for stability. The future of abdominal training is a focus on dynamic stabilization – not movement. Our new DVD – Ultimate Core Training – 21st Century Torso Training is now available. This DVD contains a multitude of exercises and progressions and non-traditional core training.
