Wednesday, July 25

We train the hollow body position quite a bit to build strength through the midline. We need to be strong through the middle to support all of the other movements we do. I know I say it all of the time, but the primary purpose of the abdominals is to stabilize the spine. When we get under a heavy squat or pick up a heavy deadlift, we need those muscles to be strong so the spine's position is not compromised under load. This goes for the erector muscles in the back as well so make sure you train both sides equally. We don't want to be unbalanced. That leads to all sorts of problems and can lead to nagging pain or soreness as things get pulled out of place. You can break up the hollow rocks and superman any way you like, but get through 100 of each.
