Traditional strength training programs, though designed to make a body stronger, often add to muscle imbalances, underdeveloped supportive muscles, and decreased range of motion simply due to the minimal joint and muscle group involvement. By increasing the amount of core-supported exercises in your workouts the more efficient and effective your body becomes. Core-centric strength training increases the number of muscles your body activates within one exercise, enhances your body’s stability, and increases your heart rate to give you more metabolically charged, powerful workouts!
