General Core Training

Rather than considering the abdominals as flexors and rotators of the trunk – for which they certainly have the capacity – their function might be better viewed as anti-rotators and anti-lateral flexors of the trunk. – James Porterfield & Carl DeRosa

Core ➡️ stabilizers, not movers. Motion prevention, not motion creation

✅ Body saws, rollouts, fallouts, front/side plank variations, crawling, carries, etc.

❌ Crunches, sit ups, russian twists, leg lifts, etc.
