There is so much out there about the benefits of Core Strength.
I speak from experience here. No, I am not doing a bunch of research for this. I am just telling you what I know for sure.
I've trained many clients from beginners to advanced levels of fitness. I can honestly say that athletes with a great deal of core strength are by far able to do much more physically than those with a weaker core. Good core strength is game changing for triathletes because so much of our sport engages the core. I had a Physical Therapist once tell me that I would be injured way less often if I increased my core strength. I found this to be TRUE.
Being on a bike in the aero position or in the drops requires CORE STRENGTH.
Running upright for 4 hours during a marathon requires CORE STRENGTH.
Swimming any distance requires CORE STRENGTH.
Pressing a barbell overhead- well you get it now. Pretty much everything we do engages our core, so why not make it rock solid and strong?
Benefits of Core STRENGTH:
