Smart Core Training

by Staffan Elgelid, PT, PhD


Smart Core Training utilizes a combination of positions of the lumbar spine and pelvis instead of training with the spine and pelvis in one single position. Hear a mixture of lecture with a literature review of what we know about core exercises and why there is a need to exercise outside of neutral, plus go through sequences of the smart core exercises.
