    Core Work

    Looking for some ideas for core work that doesn't involve sit ups (or anything else that may put any stress on the neck area).

    Ta!!

    Re: Core Work

    Thanks. Yes I'd forgotten about planks. I already do pelvic floor exercises every day though.

    What are bridges?

    Any other ideas for a bit of variety?

    Ta.

    for all the variety you could ever want this book is good.
    it gives a vast range of exercises
    development programmes
    Identifies sets of exercises beneficial to specific sports
    sets of exercises beneficial to specific probelems

    needs to be read and absorbed.

    Nice plank variations there cyclops, gave me something to think about too!
    Planking for 60 seconds while staying solid as a rock is hard work!

    I've started to go climbing/boundering twice a week and I'm finding it really good for strengthening my core.
