Core Stability is Sexy – Part Deux

Let’s talk about your Transverse Abdominis. This is the muscle that helps you breathe and stabilizes your pelvis and your lower back.

Many people’s TA’s are weak and not firing – Why? Well – sitting, being sedentary, not consciously turning them on and off, pregnancy and surgical procedures (me – 2 c sections).

This can result in fun things (sarcasm) like low back pain, an unstable pelvis, the little pooch in your lower abdomen.

Here’s the deal – you don’t want to walk around constantly sucking your gut in.

That’s not core stability.

What you are looking for is a STRONG CORE all of the time. One that you also have conscious control of.

We’re switching up our exercises for the month!

5- 6 Second Hollows
ABC Plank
5- Hollows with Alternating Arm/Leg Extended
5 Bear Crawl – Forward/Backward on your Mat OR
5 Hand/Knee Hovers
ABC Plank

Peace. And remember… #corestabilityissexy
PEACE!

Making Core Stability Sexy…?

I have to laugh because when I teach core stability, I imagine people nodding off like this…

giphy

So I decided to make Core Stability SEXY…haha! I figured if I put the word sexy in the mix it would generate some interest (or maybe just make you laugh.)

Some reasons why Core Stability is Sexy:

  1. Spine is stabilized from the inside layers of the muscles (my favorite – the multifidi) on out. You can have the strongest ab muscles in the world – and still have an unstable core. Believe me…
  2. More mobile. If your core is stable, your limbs can be more mobile.
  3. You can safely lift some (*&t.
  4. You have better balance.
  5. Less likely to get back injuries.
  6. Better posture.

So here’s a down and drrrty core stability workout:

20 Dead Bugs
ABC Plank (Plank singing the ABC’s)
20 Knee/Hand Hovers
10 Opposite Knee/Hand Hover
ABC Plank
