Solid to the Core (eBook)
A sports physiotherapist and physical trainer outlines a customizable program to strengthen core muscles, enhance flexibility, prevent chronic back and neck pain, and keep the body flexible and strong for a lifetime.
Like your house, your body needs a strong foundation to support it. In your body this foundation is made up of your core, a set of muscles and muscle groups that extend from the base of your spine to the area around your pelvis, including the muscles of your abdominal wall and back. Exercises that strengthen these muscles will foster stability and support for all activities you engage in-from carrying groceries to training for competitive sports.
Solid to the Core offers a customizable, progressive program of exercises you can use to strengthen your core. As you blend these exercises into your own personal fitness program, you’ll learn to overcome your personal weaknesses and muscle imbalances, reducing pain and risk of stress injuries in the process. In no time at all, you’ll discover the power and efficiency that can come from having a strong and stable core.
Customize your own personal exercise program to:
•Minimize your risk of injury
•Correct muscle imbalances
•Achieve better posture
•Relieve chronic muscle and joint pain
