So many people ask me how to lose the fat on their midsection. By now, if I had the answer for the quickest way to lose belly fat, do you think I’d give it away for free? I sure would. The truth is that there is no quick fix. Therefore putting in the work IS the quickest way. However many people will actually waste more time (and money) on trying to find the quickest way. After that happens they come to see me because I’m still doing the do and they are ready to stop the start-stop process. So let’s get to know our core shall we?
What Does The Core Do?
The core is a stabilizer and acts as the prime mover for most movements. Forget the chiseled abs. For 99% of people, that’s just not reality. To get to 4-6 body fat percentage takes an enormous amount of dedication and time. Because I have confidence in myself, I used my own picture for the cover art on this article. Notice that I am NOT 4-6 percent body fat. However, my core is strong AF though. Meanwhile, there are people out there that look the part, but can’t do anything with that muscle. All show and no go.
Your core is often the first place you fire your muscles. If you’re not aware of your body’s functioning, then you’ll most likely not even notice them firing. Becoming familiar with the core muscles within your body is key. Because after you’re aware of what positions you’re putting your body in pain starts to decrease. Therefore your core actually gets stronger. In addition to the proper body mechanics, you’ll have more energy too because it takes less energy to move your body properly with a strong core.
How To Become Familiar With Your Core Muscles
Start every movement with a deep contraction by your belly button. For example, when you’re sitting on the couch and about to stand up, breathe out forcefully just before you stand. That way your core is engaged and ready to protect your lower back and stabilize your legs. Because your body is ready you’re less likely to injure yourself. Above all with each WOD completed the core muscles have practiced the movements for stabilization.
Most of my clients who are in their 365 WOD Journey tell me how much their core has strengthened. Bodyweight movements all start with the core. It’s like a spring that gets coiled up tightly and then lets out the compressed energy. Your core is the spring. Be sure to practice using it daily or it will go away. Use it or lose it.
