Soccer Video: Crunch-less Core

When athletes think of performing core strengthening exercises, they often picture exercises such as the sit-up and crunch. These exercises focus on the front of the athlete’s body and often puts stress on the lower back.

The core stretches around an athlete’s trunk and includes everything from the bottom of the armpits to the top of the hips. We need to train the core as the link between the lower and upper body. These simple exercises integrate the body as whole to strengthen the muscles of the core, while reinforcing proper posture and alignment of the spine.
