WHY DO I NEED GOOD BACK + CORE STRENGTH?
Many of us don't have good enough back and/or core strength and as a result, coupled with poor posture and incorrect movement patterns in exercise and life, we suffer from recurrent back pain, back injuries and a 'bad back'. Many tend to do enough 'core work' to get us by, but never follow a proper program nor maintain the program long term. People start off with too high level exercises, don't do specific or technical enough exercises, do the wrong exercises (and not the right ones!), have poor form with exercises and don't target essential muscle groups.... or simply don't know what to do. Sound familiar? Having a strong and stable lower back and core is essential for squatting, lifting, carrying, sitting, post-natal, exercising, playing sport and life in general. To be effective in a back and core program you need detailed and clear instructions on how to do each exercise correctly with good form, understand what the exercises are for and how to progress safely each week. Sticking to a regular strengthening program long term that you can follow easily is the secret for prevention of future back injuries and recurrent back pain episodes.
