Probably more infomercials, videos, and magazine articles have been written about abdominal training than any other topic. By now, one would think Americans would have the flattest, strongest abs on the planet. Hmm, I think we all know the answer to that statement, though.
Even with a bounty of research and information on the topic, rarely is anything ever written on how to effectively train the core for function. Most abdominal programs base their workouts on the same traditional exercises and include infinite variations of boring crunches. These exercises mostly focus on the “pretty” muscles of the stomach and do little to make the spine strong, stable, and ready for higher intensity workouts.
The following article explains how to train your core the way it was meant to operate. Read on and learn a little about how your core works and the right way to train it for looks AND for function.
