STRONG POWERHOUSE CORE

PILATES!

Core strength/core stability is the ability of the abdominals, back muscles and pelvic floor to support the spine and keep the body stable, safe and balanced.  This is a fundamental in any physical activity and is key to preventing injury and performing at full potential in sports.

We have to be intentional to gain awareness of and develop the powerhouse muscles. It requires us to slow down, get quiet and concentrate.  It’s difficult to feel and control deep muscles, but when you do, your perspective on movement changes. The hands and knees demo below is an exercise our clients do to help build a strong core base.

We add TYE4 to help understand and feel the body positioning. It also requires more muscles to fire from the start 🔥 I made Kelsey Feltman try it with and then with out TYE4, and this was her feedback:

► WEARING TYE4

  • gives boundaries
  • gives feedback to help with form
  • resistance (much harder work for abs, triceps, quads, and hamstring)
  • arms and legs reach longer
  • feel muscles firing immediately
  • brings you back to home base automatically

► NO TYE4

  • lighter
  • easier but less controlled
  • harder time telling if hips are tucked
  • no boundaries
  • have to do more reps to feel muscles
  • easy to not be aligned

TYE4PARASETTERMINISHEADFLOATER workshop coming to the Nashville area!  Details will be posted soon. Perfect for chiropractors, massage therapist, trainers, coaches, instructors and everyone else who helps people improve their body.  Also great for individuals.  Let me know if you want early bird info.. comment below, message or email ashley@ashleybensonfitness.com
