If you read my blog regularly (and thank you if you do!), you know I’m a proponent of the development of – and importance of – core strength and stability. Whether you’re an athlete or not, a strong, stable core facilitates everything you do, and every movement you make.
Over the years, I’ve published articles promoting the benefits or core training, including the rationale for core training; core strengthening exercises and workouts; and the implications of core strength, as it relates to virtually every sport movement – running, jumping, throwing, kicking, etc. (to access more of my Core Strength & Stability articles, simply type the word “core” in the search box at the top of this blog page)
Here’s a nice resource from our friends at Bridge Athletic – authored by Megan Fischer-Colbrie – titled, The Importance of Core Stability in Athletes. In her article, Megan discusses advantages of core stability for athletes; the role of core training in injury prevention and rehabilitation; and the advantage of building a strong foundation that starts with the core. She also provides some useful core strengthening and stabilizing exercises.
Get STRONGER, Get FASTER!
