New Blog Post - Core Training

A quick google search for the definition of your ‘core’ as it relates to the human body, gives definitions such as, “…the core is commonly considered to be the torso” along with a few airbrushed images of individuals with glistening 12 packs. As we slowly approach beach season and the desire for aesthetically pleasing abs increases, this post will look at how we go about training the core at the Duckett Performance Center.

  • One common mistake sport coaches and athletes make after periods of extended rest is trying to make up for lost time in the first days back. The mindset is that the athletes are well rested, so they should be ready for heavy workloads and that they need to ‘get the rust off’ and get back into shape. This is kind of like trying to taking a drink from a fire hose and it is potentially a recipe for disaster.

There are 3 main neuromuscular mechanisms that explain how these improvements occur.  Learn more here: https://edgeschool.com/athlete-development/benefits-of-youth-strength-conditioning/
