Fascia: The Dark Matter of Human Biology
Direct vs Indirect Core Work
This week we are taking a look at core training. We are discussing what it is, why we train, and how. We define the core as any muscle that attaches to or acts on the spine, the ribcage, or the pelvis. 1.) Structure and stability 2.) Force dispersion 3.) Force dispersion 4.) Fatigue resistant 5.) Able to bend and counter-rotate Direct: Ground work, rotation/anti-rotation, offset loading, MB, and flexion/extension movement Indirect: Primary lifts, unilateral acceleration, speed/plyometrics, and locomotive movement Training the core in one way such as the big lifts, only develops a strong core for those movements. But the core is involved in everything you do and in sports It is involved in all contralateral based movements. Core muscles are autonomic, they react and fire prior to conscious movement. The rectus abdomens is structured for the ability to transfer force from the upper and lower body. The psoas is a main synergist in sport because of where it attaches on the lumbar spine and inserts on the femur. In sport you have to be able to create and produce force, pressure, and accommodate torque. Bracing and breathe work are crucial in training and often overlooked. This also plays a big role in Women’s Health and incontinence issues. Diaphragmatic breathing in conjunction with the pelvic floor can help resolve some of these issue.

We’ve been discussing this since our first eBook dropped. Conscious Core eBook and 6-week training program is available for free on our website under the “Open Content” tab.
