Our CORE basically ties together our hips and shoulders. It stabilizes the spine, resists movement, assists movement and transfers energy between all four limbs. Glutes, obliques, lats, transverse abdominus, rectus abdominus, spinal erectors and more. Its important to isolate these muscles and also integrate them into compound movements. Used correctly, these exercises can help reduce common aches and pains, get stronger, hit harder, and dominate the competition from every position.
Bottom line: A strong CORE can help you hit harder, control your opponent and move with more efficiency.
