PMR Episode 127 Feature Image


We've seen more than our fair share of gimmicky abdominal exercise machines and over-the-top core training routines. These products and programs consistently promise miraculous results. Six packs in six weeks, inches off your waist with no effort, or improved posture and athletic performance. Do they really work well? Slick marketing can mislead us with doctored before and after photos. Real scientific inquiry is not so easily deceived. In the spirit of deconstructing core training we brought in a real expert on the subject, Dr. Mike T. Nelson.

Dr. Mike holds a PhD in Exercise Physiology, a BA in Natural Science and an MS in Mechanical Engineering, so he definitely knows his stuff.

On today's show we discuss:

  • How he went from building actual ray guns to studying exercise science.
  • What the core really is and how your current training program is affecting it.
  • The difference between training for life versus training for the gym.
  • Why a gymnastics hollow position might be a better core exercises than a CrossFit GHD sit-up.
  • What your squat tells you about core stability.
  • What core training equipment actually works.
