In a previous post I discussed two of the three types of core training; core stability and strength. Today I will shed some light on the third and most advanced form of core training:
Core power ishe ability to maintain effective core stability (core muscle engagement and spinal positioning) in the Lumbo-Pelvic-Hip Complex with fast and forceful movement at the spine.
Core power exercises also commonly have a point of release where a medicine ball or other modality is propeled by the force and power generated from one's core.
as fast as you can control (core engagement and positioning)
0-60 secs rest
Note: The medicine ball should not be greater than 10% of your body weight
Now just because you know the basics on core power does not mean you should go out and immediately try it at the gym. Tomorrow I will discuss the core training progression and when the each of the three types should be done.
