Abstract

summary: Confusion exists regarding what the core musculature is, how it is evaluated, how it is trained, and how it is applied to functional performance. The core musculature is divided into 2 systems, local (stabilization) and global (movement), with distinction between core-strength, core-stability, and functional exercises.
