100 Words: The Core of the Body ~ Three Body Weights

Principle 8 – The Core of the Body ~ Three Body Weights

P8 old dude with 6 pack

When most of us hear “core” we think “belly” — more specifically a hard, flat belly.

Core work = sit-ups!  Right?

Principle 8 and The Body’s Way is about much more than getting a 6-pack. The Core of the Body includes three body weights – the pelvis, chest and head – and the spine that connects them. Increased mobility between the three body weights (movement in the waist and neck) improves strength and stability in the whole body. Avoid the “toothpick with a marshmallow on top” alignment and invite in fluid strength.
