Coach's Tips

1. Keep your core engaged.  Be concious of tighening the muscles that support the core.

2. Always make sure that the back is flat on the floor when performing any kind of crunch or sit-up.

3. Master the pelvic tilt to accomplish getting your back resting flat on the mat.

4. Incorporate your breathing into the exercises being sure to inhale as the body cavity expands and exhale as the cavity contracts.

Summary

It would be hard to overstate the importance of core training.  One of the primary effects of core training is the relief of lower back pain.  Lower back pain is one of the most common complaints of people over 40.  Performing core exercises greatly reduces the likelihood of chronic or acute lower back pain.
