Do you ever get a sore back after doing core strength exercises? You are not alone. Many core exercises currently taught in fitness classes are actually contributing to low back injuries. Recent research has discovered the ultimate core strength exercises. The Big Three minimize disc load and shear stress on the spine while producing fantastic core muscle contraction. Did you know that hollowing the abdomen during a core exercise only fires one layer of the abdominal wall? Learn the simple technique to fire all three layers.
