Happy New Year!

2012 was easily the best year of my professional career. After 2012, I’ve walked away with learning the application of activating the necessary musculature for effective structural integration. In layman’s terms: I learned what genuinely good posture actually is.

To ring in the new year, I decided to put up some functional core training with a barbell. As of late it has been my tool of choice for my own personal workouts and they have been challenging me significantly.

The movements covered in this core training circuit are all oriented around activation the Anterior Oblique System and Posterior Oblique Systems. Those systems are responsible for the development of effective rotational strength found in the transverse plane of motion.
