Core Training Tips

Are you thinking of getting back into your weekly workout routine? If you’re unsure where to start, look at our core training tips below. You’ll be working up a sweat with these simple tricks and tips. These quick and easy ways to improve your exercise routine offer a more efficient, challenging workout with maximum results. These simple techniques will help you get the most out of your next gym session without breaking the bank on new equipment or expensive classes.

1. Utilize Your Tools

Finding the motivation and energy to get started can be challenging for those new to exercise. Fortunately, many tools are designed to help you get started with an exercise routine, especially if you’re a beginner. These tools, from apps to fitness trackers, make it easier to get the most out of your workout. Fitness trackers can help you track your calories burned, heart rate, and water intake.

2. Set achievable goals

Goals are essential, and they’re necessary if you want to get the most out of your workout routine. However, it’s important to set achievable goals for exercise. Otherwise, you risk getting discouraged. For example, if you’re hoping to lose a certain amount of weight in a specific timeframe, you need to set realistic goals. When it comes to exercise, many people want to lose weight, build muscle, and improve their fitness. While it’s great to have lofty goals, setting realistic and achievable goals is essential to ensure you don’t get discouraged along your fitness journey.

3. Go for compound exercises

Compound exercises are exercises that utilize more than one muscle group at once. These types of exercises are not only efficient but also help you burn more calories and fat in less time. Furthermore, they also help you build more muscle and become stronger by engaging more of your muscles at once.

4. Keep Track of Your Progress

There’s nothing more motivating than progress. You can monitor your progress by monitoring your improvements and achievements, driving you to push harder at your next workout. This can be done in several ways, from tracking your progress on an app to creating a journal. If you’re struggling to find the motivation to start your workout routine, then consider keeping track of your progress to stay engaged and excited about your progress. This can be done in several ways, from writing down the number of calories you’ve burned to track your water intake. With these core training tips, you can get the most out of your workout and achieve the results you’re hoping for.

5. Don’t forget to stretch after your workout

You’ve completed your intense training, and it’s time to cool down. The best way to do that is with a stretch session. Stretching your muscles after a workout will help them relax or reduce your risk of injury and improve your recovery time. Performing yoga or other physical activities requiring flexibility after stretching will help improve your flexibility and performance. Stretching reduces the risk of injury and improves your flexibility. It also lets you relax after a workout, boosting your mood by releasing endorphins. All of these benefits make stretching an essential part of any workout routine.

The Spinal Health and Core Training seminar last weekend in Edmonton was great.

The program was fabulous, and the information provided by all four speakers was excellent. We were able to contribute our personal views on spinal health and core training to the group. 

Here are some clips from the past weekend that you may enjoy.

Core Performance for Results and Spinal Health with Tony Gentilcore

CLICK HERE to watch the video clip.

Tony did great during his first significant seminar on spinal health and core training. He provided a performance-based perspective on spinal health and core training. 

In the video, he addresses the subject of assessment. He spends most of his time in the clip talking about overhead evaluations and advises how wide to make the squat bar when teaching students. 

Before this clip, Tony went through the table assessments he uses with his athletes.

Amazing Stuff!

Oh ya, at the end of the clips, he highlights how you know if it is stability or a mobility issue when someone squats—great tips and cues.
