Increasing Core Strength & Stability

About This Class

We’ve all been told that we need to have a strong and stable core, but do you know why or how to achieve that goal? Master Coach Rebecca Rouse gives us the “Why” and the “How” for increasing your core strength and stability.

Why do you need to build a strong, stable core?

- Protects the spine and prevents injury

- Connects the upper/lower body and allows them to work together

- Improves balance

- For athletes, a strong core allows the body to produce more power

- Translates to exercises outside the gym, such as carrying groceries, picking up kids/grandkids

 

First, stabilize. Then, breathe. Finally, move.

1.Dead bug

3.Tension (hardstyle) plank

4.Side plank with rotation

5.Suitcase march/carry
