Everyone talks about the need for a strong core, but what exactly is the “core”? What function does it serve? How do we train it? And how do we progress training? This month on HMMR Media we sought some answers to those questions with 3 new member videos, 2 podcasts, and 7 new articles from 11 contributors.
Below you will find links to our new resources on the topic. You can also find more information on the topic by browsing around the site, such as the core section of our movement library. As always, become a HMMR Plus Members to get complete access to all of the resources below, including the premium content in the HMMR Classroom. You can find overviews of past monthly themes here.
