Assessing and Training your Core Assessing and Training your Core

The problem with core exercise programs is that they typically do not work. Assessing your core and related issues that can affect your core function is the first step. Second, effective training that is unique to each person is important.

COR Strength Screen Part 3 COR Strength Screen Part 3

This is Part 3 of our COR Strength Screen. Using diagnostic ultrasound we test different activities that should engage your core normally. We are looking for involuntary activation of your core. We will also look at voluntary core activation or tightening your core on demand.

Abdominal bracing for core activation is the foundation for all our future exercises. While it is not the only activity we will be using to get your core to engage it is a good place to start. To determine its effectiveness we use diagnostic ultrasound for Targeted Core Training.

COR Strength Screen Part 1 COR Strength Screen Part 1

This is part 1 of our screening process for core strength and function. Posture, breathing, and back and pelvic issues are what we look for as part of our screen. Determining a cause for a weak core is an important part of the process.

COR Strength Screen Part 2 COR Strength Screen Part 2

Part 2 of our core screening process is about how we use diagnostic ultrasound to assess core function. When the core muscles thicken they are contracting. Through different actions we test to see if the core is activating.

Weak core after abdominal surgery Weak core after abdominal surgery

Following a ruptured appendix, abdominal surgery and an infection my core was not working. This limited my ability to hike and run with tension and pain to my trunk. Targeted Core Training has improved my core and my ability to live my life again. Seeing my core function in real time allowed me to start engaging my core, reducing my pain and tension, and push beyond my limits. This is my COR Strength Story. SEE IT, TRAIN IT, LIVE IT!

Targeted Core Training is using diagnostic ultrasound to see core function. When strengthening your core muscles or abdomen seeing how your muscles engage in real time enhances any program and speeds up core activation, strengthening and recovery.
