Core stability, and the muscles that assist in core stability, have become a priority in rehabilitation and fitness. They play an important role in all that we do – from performing the simplest of activities to maintaining good posture. Core stability muscles assist in stabilizing the lower back and pelvis; when ignored they weaken, and the risk of lower back and pelvis related injuries increase. This course will cover anatomy of the core, and introduce functional core exercises, which focus on strengthening core muscles and stabilizing the lower back and pelvis.
-Specific exercises used to isolate muscles involved in core stability
-Exercise progressions used for beginner and advanced clients
-Core stability training principles
-Methods used to assess levels of core stability
-Core stability exercises for clinical and fitness settings
