Core Training Exercises – Conditioning the Posterior Oblique Sling


Here is a core exercise that also trains the posterior oblique sling. The posterior oblique sling is the powerhouse behind most unilateral movements in reality. Like many other exercises that encompass rotation and contralateral reciprocation, this is one chain of integrated musculature that is rarely ever conditioned effectively. If you are new to this type of training, be sure to learn about the concept of structural integration first to ensure we don’t create imbalances that will lead you to pain or injury later!

    Hi Naudi,

    I inquired about your certification program here in Germany to the guy in Munich but haven’t heard anything from him. Perhaps you can tell me when, where and the cost of the certification program.

    Thank you for your time and assistance concerning this matter.

    Ciao in fitness,
    Tony Sablan

    I love all your stuff. I am a national level track athlete both in Colombia and Canada and I have found some great value in your work. I am just curious as to where you operate, I imagine somewhere in he states and I am will be making a few trips In a short little while and it would be amazing to meet you.
    I also forgot to mention that I am a kinesiology student and each every day that I watch your videos once I get into the real world of the workforce I want to be able to help people in a similar way as you do it.

    Thank you

    Ally 🙂

    Hey Naudi – I am a little confused by this one. Looking at the first segment of this movement, you have the cable in your right arm, and lunge forward with your left leg. I understand how the hamstrings are in an isometric hold on the left, but as you are coming back up, you are talking about the posterior sling of the left glut — but when you are coming back up, aren’t you using the right leg concentrically (the left is moving concentrically as well, but it is off the ground – so you aren’t using that leg to get back to standing) i.e. isn’t the right side driving the movement pattern?

    Hi Naudi,

    Why do you think some individuals cannot engage the Gluteus Max properly even after correcting neurological and mechanical issues?
    Any thoughts?
