Are Core Stability Exercises Useless for Building Functional Strength?

Hi everyone!

I was in Europe the last 3 weeks running seminars and what an amazing experience it turned out to be. It’s looking like I will be returning to the same places in Europe as well as some new ones come spring of 2014! Just got into Brazil last night, I will be in and out of Brazil for the next month running seminars and helping some UFC fighters prepare for a couple events. Busy Busy Busy!!!

For today’s blogpost, I decided I would put up a response to a question I received from one of my students at a seminar I held in Munich, Germany. The question was in regards to the effectiveness of stability training on unstable surfaces as well as why it is that I use it in my practice. Since time is not a luxury while I’m traveling, I will not be able to elaborate further in writing as to why the establishment’s studies are completely inconclusive in relation to training on unstable surfaces. The video Above however should give you a sneak peek at what I will be writing and making videos about in my “Dogma of the Week” posts come January of next year.

I will keep you guys posted on my travels and the highlights of my trip.

Train intentionally,
Not Habitually,

    Thank you for sharing this video. That is so true what you said about training your body to adapt to what stress we have or incorporate in our life. For me it’s including the stress my body have to learn to cope with and respond to Filipino Martial Arts & combative training, and I see people struggling with what I think is a simple movement with a little bit of upper & lower body coordination. I love your posts,videos & your e-book. Thank you for sharing your knowledge & I hope you make it to Melbourne for a seminar one day 🙂
