The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Core Muscle Strength Test

    The Core Muscle Strength Test is conducted as follows:


    Position the watch on the ground where you can easily see it

    Assume the basic press up position as in the picture above. (Push-up position with forearms on the floor)

    Hold this position for 60 seconds
    Lift your right arm off the ground
    Hold this position for 15 seconds
    Return your right arm to the ground and lift the left arm off the ground
    Hold this position for 15 seconds
    Return your left arm to the ground and lift the right leg off the ground
    Hold this position for 15 seconds
    Return your right leg to the ground and lift the left leg off the ground
    Hold this position for 15 seconds
    Lift your left leg and right arm off the ground
    Hold this position for 15 seconds
    Return you left leg and right arm to the ground
    Lift your right leg and left arm off the ground
    Hold this position for 15 seconds
    Return to the basic press up position - as in the picture above
    Hold this position for 30 seconds
    Analysis
    Analysis of the result is by comparing it with the results of previous tests. It is expected that, with appropriate training between each test, the analysis would indicate an improvement.

    If you were able to complete this test then it indicates you have good core strength. If you are unable to complete the test then repeat the routine 3 or 4 times a week until you can.

    If core strength is poor then the torso will move unnecessarily during motion and waste energy. Good core strength indicates that the athlete can move with high efficiency.

    It took more effort than I had expected, I think I will practice this three times a week along with my sit-ups.
