THIS is what training the CORE is about

I was pleasantly SURPRISED with this succinctly written article. I couldn’t have said it better myself….
I’ve been a trainer for almost 13 years. In that time, I’ve spent A LOT of time studying the muscles that collectively are known as the core. 
Understanding the true function of these muscles and how they perform their primary job of spinal and hip stability has been a product of years of study and practical experience/ practice. 
So, when I see any blog or article claiming to explain core exercise or function, my natural instinct (from experience) is to cringe. I’ve come to not expect much, at best, from these articles.
If you’d like to understand the true function of the core unit and how to TRAIN it, read this.
