What methods have you usedto teach clients that core stability (endurance) must be mastered prior to developing core strength? Often clients request to do abdominal exercises they have read about and or viewed in the gym. It “looks more fun” than the “draw in” type. How do you keep them happy and safe?
I always start with spinal stabilization exercises before core stabilization.
It is not possible to stabilize the core musculature if one doesn’t have awareness of what is happening at the vertebral column.
I tend to teach spinal stabilization standing, sitting, supine and prone, unloaded and loaded. I also teach the client scapular stability.
Once an awareness is there, I am in a position to teach much more complex movements that involve the entire core.
