The best exercise for the stability system is one that is appropriate for the clients current fitness and that has followed the proper progression. For some, it may be planks and bridging. Then learning to intentionally activate the stability muscles. Then integration with movement, starting with simple movement patterns like walking and progressing to loaded movements like squats and then load movements that travel like lunges. And sport/activity specific movements for competition or occupational demands.
I teach fitness instructor courses for certification preparation and CECs on the Big Island of Hawaii. Check out my new website, www.hawaiifitnessacademy.com for more information.
Come to the Big Island for a Continuing Educaton Vacation and you should be able to write off most of your expenses (if you set up your week/weeks with me properly) for the trip.
Ask your tax guy. According to my tax advisor, “Professionals must spend over half of their days doing business (in a CEC course for some part of the day) to deduct airfare. Other costs (Hotels, meals, rental car) are only written off for the business days (days of CEC courses).”
I set up CEC courses for individuals or groups according to this, their budget, and how they want to set up their time. I can take you around the island for off site course work and out on field trips like swimming the triathlon course, biking, hiking the volcano,and more with CEC time, etc. And you get to come to Hawaii!!
Interesting way to market one’s program. Abs! All are great exercises that will overload the various muscles that comprise the abs. One that doesn’t get a lot of attention–what I call reverse trunk curls. Supine, hips at 90 degrees flexion. No movement at hips or knees, posteriorly tilt pelvis. Small movement. Targets the inferior region of the abs.
