When you train your chest, your back, your arms, your legs, and everything else, for that matter, you use weights to properly develop the muscle targeted. But when it comes to abs, many people ditch the weights and go crazy doing countless numbers of crunches.
Start doing loaded abdominal work. You’ll feel a dramatic difference in the stimulus.
Core training is a very important aspect of an exercise routine for athletes. When incorporated into a proper workout routine it will help improve neuromuscular control and hopefully reduce injuries. The trunk of the body is considered the core and is comprised of the abdominal muscles, back muscles, pelvic floor muscles and the diaphragm. The core is the basis for all functional movements in sports, and is crucial for everything from cutting, to pivoting, to throwing, etc. Its main purposes are to allow for balance & stability, absorbing force and for the transfer of force/energy to the extremities. The transfer of force/energy affords the athlete the ability to generate additional power with various athletic activities such as a golf swing or a punch.
Incorporating proper technique and core training into a routine will facilitate improved neuromuscular athletic movement patterns which can help with maintaining correct alignment and stability of the spine and pelvis while performing an athletic activity. It will also help the athlete become more efficient with the execution of movements. The strength or weakness of the core will determine the athlete’s ability to move and generate power efficiently while participating in sport. Having good core strength, stability, and efficient dynamic neuromuscular control will facilitate the opportunity for improved sports performance.
Power endurance is the “holy grail” of athletic performance – so why not train like an athlete and reap the same benefits?
Some other benefits of BFit training include:
– Calorie Incinerator. Burn calories at a more efficient pace.
– Killer ab & core workouts.
– Builds functional strength. Real world, manly strength. You will develop a grip like a vice, shoulders like a lumberjack and the core of a gymnast.
– Low impact training. Minimal stress is placed on the joints, with all the force applied to the muscular system.
– Athletic Performance. Trains the neuromuscular system to apply force that begins at the core and extends through the extremities (both arms and legs) – a must for improving performance.
– Psychological training. It hurts, then it hurts some more. Push past those barriers and see what you are truly made of.
