Almost everyone loves the look of a well defined stomach right? But the core is much more than your six pack muscle. However, if you walk into any gym, crunches rule the roost Seen enough crazy crunches to last me a life time!

Almost everyone who comes to the gym wants a sexy midsection. Right? Know I do. But it's not all about looks..... it is about function as well. Weak core will limit everything you do, in and out of the gym. Weak core will cause poor posture and low back pain. Limit the weight you can lift. How far you can run. How much air you can breath in. The list can go on and on.

One of the more annoying, yet common myths in the fitness world is that you can "spot train" muscles.

Question; John “When should I have my energy drink or coffee?”This is a great question. Energy is based on the consumption of food in the form of calories in macronutrients such as proteins, carbohydrates and fats. It is the only form of energy there is. When you are tired you should start with a well-balanced meal to provide you the energy you need.

A majority of strength training professionals have their fair share of core exercises that they would not think twice about using in an athletes program.  The core is believed to play an integral role in the body's ability to generate, transfer, and absorb external forces.  Athlete's undergo many external stressors during training and competition, and must have a strong "link" (the core), to keep the body functioning as a unit, or so we have thought. What research has shown
