Week #2 In our Crunch-less Abs core development Series.
With the focus of July being “how to develop a strong core” last week we shot members of our email list video #1 in our “Re-education series”
Nothing crazy but starting from ground zero we hit on the point that a solid core pays off a lot more than just having a good looking six pack. Sure wash-board abs look great but how to get them
“clean diet and the right training” is a whole other issue we are talking about having strong functional core.
A well developed Core that really works, does two things very ..well..
#1 its protects your spine / back and surrounding musculature from injury when you are in motion.
#2 It transfers and produces force in rotational motions
No matter what you are training it is important to remember research has shown that athletes with higher core stability have a way lower risk of injury so a functional core is always a great thing to have.
All that being the case this weeks core focused drills introduce a few variations of the palloff press
There are so many variations of the movement you could do but our new trainee progression goes as below in video’s #1 & 2..
Key technique points
1-Decent Level Squat – to activate the legs
2-Try to stay square the band will be pulling you back towards it
4- Full extension on the arms on both variations
5- keep your head and shoulder facing forward on the rotation
Variation #2 + rotation
See you in a bit
