First and most importantly what exactly is the core??
•The structures that make up the lumbo-pelvic-hip complex (LPHC). The lumbar spine, pelvis & hip musculoskeletal structures —> basically the pelvic floor up to the diaphragm.
To be more exact:
•transverse abdominals (deep core muscles)
•internal and external obliques
•rectus abdominals (outer layer of abs)
•erector spinae (muscles next to spine)
•diaphragm (top of your core/breathing)
•pelvic floor (floor of your core)
•multifidus (deep muscle that runs along your spine)
•quadratus lumboreum (deep lower back muscle)
Think of the core as the center of your body and it’s function is to help you move through movements and stabilize your spine, trunk & pelvis.
My training focuses on the transverse abdominals, glutes, pelvic floor function, healthy hips & the diaphragm:
Core strength promotes stability for overall body coordination & mobility for improved everyday living and athletic performance.
well-functioning core & strong glutes enhance pelvic alignment, ideal body posture & lower back support.
Glute strength helps prevent the risk of knee, hip, ankle & back injuries AND is essential for pelvic floor health since your glute muscles attach to the back and side of your pelvis.
Natural breathing patterns help regulate your intra-abdominal pressure, which will aid core and pelvic floor function, as well as, help prevent Diastasis Recti, back pain, prolapse and hernias.
Not only am I highly qualified & certified, but I have also learned a great deal from my own personal adventure with my core health.
