Matt Espeut’s Fit For Life: Great Abs Now
Saturday, May 18, 2013
I see it daily: Guys in the gym killing themselves for an hour, then get on some “ab” machine, or do a few minutes of crunches and then go home. Sure, they can look great, from a distance. But when you look closer you notice the forward head tilt, the weight belts, the rounded shoulders, etc. These guys are guaranteed to acquire back pain due to the lack of core strength and stability.
If you are a golfer or waiter with lower back pain, it’s usually due to instability of the core. Having a strong core requires two things:
- Proper nutrition
- Proper training technique
When your mid-section is properly conditioned, you not only look better—you stand taller, lift heavier weights (if that is part of your goal), and perform your daily activities better and with less injury. All core routines should consist of abdominal and lower back training using movements in a multi plainer range of motion.
Again, set your goals—and regardless of what they are—bulking up, having less injuries and strain, looking great, or being in your best condition, remember, it’s all about THE CORE – regardless of what else you do.
