FitOldDog Exercise Video #3: Two Simple Core Exercises

Hi folks,

There is much more to effective core training than sit-ups or crunches. The best approach, in my opinion, is thorough training in Pilates. I have attached a video that shows two exercises I like for their simplicity. My Pilates instructor, Tara House, helped me to make this video at the Spira Pilates Studio, whilst Deb operated the iPad 2.

You can find a lot more information about core training on the web, which I highly recommend that you explore. Stability of your core will protect your lower back, improve security on the bike, hold your body firm and high, but relaxed, in the water during freestyle, and reduce risks of running-induced injuries. Funnily enough, this is the one area that we (including yours truly) tend to neglect.

    I really liked that video. It is helpful to see it rather than read it. You guys make a good team! You need to do more of those.
