There are many ways you would have heard it by now if you train. “Brace your core”, “Tighten your core”, “pull your stomach in” and many more ways it is expressed. All a method of quickly cueing a much more complex process involving various muscles. There are many steps required for those that are new to the practice of bracing your core when lifting or doing another activity that require spinal stability (hint: it’s all of them). Therein lies the importance of core stability – it creates spinal stability. It may seem like boring work at times, sometimes hearing it over and over from your coach may be annoying, but the point can never be stressed enough, so your spine doesn’t have to be. Whether the movement is in a sagittal, frontal, or transverse plane of motion, core strength must be there.
