Core Beliefs! Creating ab engagement
I deal with a lot of clients that come in and never really feel anything.
Sure, certain things burn when fatigue sets in but typically this is just due to being tired. This often stems from the inability to develop tension in the right places.
This ability to develop tension--especially in the core-- is one of the most important concepts to ensure we are using the right muscles to get what we want out of training.
Early on, I often have clients hold bands and squeeze blocks to assist in "finding" the right core muscles. This is a great strategy to use if you cant feel certain exercises and is the subject of this week's exercises.
By using a band and squeeze a block with focused breathing, I am literally forcing my body to utilize the right muscles in these two core drills. Try them out and follow the instructions in the video!
