We emphasize core work… a lot. It’s not just about having a “strong core” though. Your core also needs to be stable. The ability to make your core stiff, or rigid, when it needs to be is one of the keys to a healthy and pain-free back, whether lifting or not. If you want to know what you can (and should) do each day to increase your core stability, then click below to read Dr. Stuart McGill’s Big 3. Dr. McGill has been cited as a leading expert on back pain for decades and through our own experience we’ve come to trust his research.
Of course, we encourage you to read the whole article to understand “the why”, but if you just want the movements, then skip down to the “Big 3”. As always, the more you know, the better you’ll understand the coaches when they speak about these movements and the more you’ll get out of classes!
