10 May Why You Are Training Your Core All Wrong
And also, there’s muscle exercises like the plank. Now, the plank, in itself is an exercise, it doesn’t actually have any direct transfer into your outdoor or wilderness environment. You know, if you’re just holding plank until you’re shaking, there’s better things you could be doing. And that’s things like doing stuff that actually has movement. We get people to do exercises called dead bugs. And the other thing is doing bear crawls. And really slow, knees bent and doing bear crawls along length of ground, keeping your core nice and tight and everything on, it’s fantastic! Because we’re then starting to integrate both left and right and the same movements as we did. Yes, we’re all on all fours, but we’re actually integrating the movements that we would be if we were standing erect as well. Okay, there’s other exercises as well. You can do planks where you move where you move one leg out and the opposite arm out at the same time. There’s a whole heap of things that you can do that are a load better than either doing that single plane exercise like a situp, or something that’s just non transferable in a position that we don’t find ourselves in at all, like the plank. So, that’s it my little lesson of the core. Enjoy the tin of beans.
