3D: Deter – Core

Disclaimer: this post is my experience. Seek advice from a professional in medicine and sports science. Also, I am eating leftover chicken alfredo as I write so I acknowledge the hypocrisy of a post about core strength right now. (That’s a joke, of sorts.)

Some recent manual labor has thrown my back out of sorts. I was reminded how necessary it is to exercise our core, torso muscles – if you will. This needs to be maintenance habit. Like all good habits, it is easy to break.

Going through an app and experience, I want to keep up with the following exercises:

Neural spine crunches: lay on the floor on your back, knees up, tilt your pelvis until you feel maximum comfort/no pain. Raise your shoulders towards your knees and tighten your abs. 1-2 sets of 6-20 reps will do.

Neural spine bridge: lay on the floor on your back, knees up, tilt your pelvis until you feel maximum comfort/no pain. Raise your pelvis up off the ground while keeping your abdominals tight. 1-2 sets of 10 are good.

Neural spine bicycle kicks: lay on the floor on your back, knees up, tilt your pelvis until you feel maximum comfort/no pain. Pretend your peddling a bike in the air. 1 minute will suffice.

Plank: face down on the floor, hold yourself up on your elbows and keep your torso muscles tight so that your body is in the air. Weight should be on elbow and feet. If you have back problems, keep your knees on the ground. Try this for 2 sets of 30 seconds.
