Core training has become a quite popular fitness trend over the years also a common method of training. The objective of core training is to uniformly strengthen all the deep and superficial muscles that stabilize, align, and to move the trunk of our body, the muscles of the back and the abdominals.

Historically a vast majority of physical therapists prescribed core exercises for patients with low back problems. More recently core training has become big time popular among many athletes to help improve performance. Core training is now commonly incorporated into exercise programs in the majority of our health clubs to help clients to achieve their goals ranging from a stronger lower back to a flatter midsection. A weak core is a fundamental problem inherent to inefficient movement that can lead to predictable patterns of injury.

A well constructed core training program can help an individual gain neuromuscular control, muscular endurance, stability, power of the core and strength. A strong and efficient core is 100% necessary for maintaining proper muscle balance throughout the entire human movement system. Numerous studies also support the role of core training for rehabilitation, in addition a proper application of specific core training programs can reduce pain also help improve function and performance.

The goal of core training is to develop optimal levels of neuromuscular efficiency, stability and functional strength (movement system) . Neural adaptations should become the focus of the program instead of striving for absolute strength gains. Increasing proprioceptive demand by using a multisensory environment and using multiple modalities (balls, balance equipment, bands) is more important than increasing the external resistance. Okay my friends listen up.the quality of movement should be stressed over quantity, the focus of the program should be on function.

Here is a list of core training exercises


. Marching                                                         . Ball crunch

. Floor bridge                                                    . Back extensions

. Floor prone cobra                                          . Reverse crunch

. Prone iso-ab                                                    . Cable rotati


I can not stress enough the importance of heaven a strong core. If you have not started a core training program please, please do, a strong core changes everything.

May your workout be all that you want it to be.

Humbly yours Paul Earl

  1. I work in a sometimes physically intensive working environment and since I’ve started focusing on mixing in more core training with my normal workout regime I’ve noticed a substantial increase in the ease at which I’m able to lift AND carry the heavy stuff. Many people don’t understand the difference between lifting and carrying. If you can be consistent about your routine you’ll notice quite the difference in the strength of your lower back and feel stronger in general. Some more beautiful advice from you Paul, thank you!
