Athletes come in to FitWorkz with a lot of old school ideas on how to train the core. Most of them have been told that all core training requires is crunches, side bends, and sit ups. For our athletes, these exercise simply aren’t good enough. These three exercises are known to put unnecessary strain on the lower back, which can potentially injure them. To create more durable, powerful, and faster athletes, we use the following exercises.
A. Side Plank
4. Pallof Press
These exercises create athletes with better body awareness, core strength, and durability when compared to their peers. We use variations of these exercises before each of our FitWorkz Sport Performance workouts, and have seen great improvements in our athletes.
