A strong centre
The trunk muscles include the straight abdominal muscles, the inner and outer oblique abdominal muscles, the back extensor and the pelvic floor muscles. It fulfils many tasks: It protects the spine from too much movement (e.g. from a slipped disc) and makes powerful movements such as a sprint possible. Usually one takes its function for granted and notices its importance when it fails its duty. Pain and bad posture are first signs, injuries are another consequence.
Basically, exercise is the best thing you can do for a healthy body. A strong trunk is a prerequisite for enjoying sports more or simply staying free of pain.
Athletes who have almost no back pain and have a very strong torso are weightlifters. Lifting heavy loads gradually over many years is the best way to train the trunk and its muscles. So if strength training is already part of your standard repertoire. Keep it up, please.
Because we as trainers are always concerned about the feasibility of training, and because training at home is often more practical, we have put together Functional Fit's trainings in such a way that they harmoniously train the trunk and the adjacent muscle chains:
Buttocks, back, abdomen and shoulders form a unit which, when trained successively, will bring you more joy of life. Even if you sometimes only have time once a week.
