Core Training Tips

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

We had a great group of people that attended and the information shared by all four presenters was great. We all were able to bring out own perspective 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

This was Tony’s first presentation at a major seminar.  He did amazing.  He brought the performance perspective when it comes to spinal health and core training.

In the clip above, he talks about assessment.  He spends most of his time in this clip talking about overhead assessment, plus he highlights what hip width to get someone to take when they are doing an overhead assessment and you are teaching them to squat.

Just prior to this clip, Tony went through the table assessments that 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 cueing.

Dean performed “Fitness Voodoo” during his presentation.  One part of his vodo presentation is above.

He goes through cueing that you can do with your client when they perform the lat pulldown.  He highlights what to do with the head, thoracic spine, and hands.

 I will have more clips from the weekend in the next few days.
