The Power Center

July 16, 2009


Whatever you do, don’t forget about your power center!  Yes, you have a locus of power!  It helps you with your speed and quickness, your balance, and your overall power.  This center of power helps you to change directions quickly, reduce your chances of injury, and steer clear of back injury.  What is this Power Center?  It’s your core!  Other names for it are the “trunk”, and the “low torso”.  It includes your abdominal wall, your lower back muscles, and the muscles on either side of your abdominal area (they’re called obliques).  Keeping this area in good shape helps with all the physical attributes just mentioned, and as an extra added bonus, if you’re lean, this area helps you look good too.  We’ll get more into the specifics of a strong healthy core in the coming days.
