439: Engage Your Core

Time Block K - Friday, 9:40-11:30am
Presented by: Lynne Skilton-Hayes
Session Format: Workshop

The "core" is all the joints and muscle groups between our neck and knees. But I think we can agree that when many instructors or trainers cue "engage your core" they mean engage your torso muscles or abdominals. By cuing this way, we are neglecting to cue key positioning for the shoulder girdle and pelvic girdle, key players in the core in addition to our torso muscles. So, are we confusing our students as to what the core really is? This workshop is designed to fine-tune your cuing of the core, and fill your toolbox with a load of multiplanar exercises that effectively and specifically target the shoulder girdle, pelvic girdle and everything in between.
