It's About Time

If you have ever spent more that 5 minutes with me, it is fairly obvious that I love fitness. I have learned so much (sometimes the hard way) in the 30 years that I have been teaching. What better way to share my passion than to start a blog and pass on the information that I share with clients on a day-to-day basis.

  8. Normal range of motion for spinal flexion is 30-45 degrees.
  9. There are only 4 major muscles considered when training the “core.”
  10. The most effective training for the core is flexion exercises.
  11. You don’t actually have a 4-pac not an 6-pac.
  12. Your four major abdominal muscles run in the front, sides and back of your core.
