Core Test For Core Strength And Stability - Put Yourself First

Core Test For Core Strength And Stability


Core Test

Core Test

Ever try a Core Test? A core strength and stability test to see how strong and stabile your core truly is? This year marks the 10 year anniversary since I posted a demonstration of doing the Core Test (listed below)! I was trying to prove to myself my core had gotten stronger after doing P90X for 2 years! I proved myself correctly!

The test takes about 3 minutes to complete.  You start out in a plank position and then throughout the core test you lift various limbs to really test your stability!

Holding plank with a variety of ways to challenge your stability is a great isometric exercise to train your core! Time under tension for your muscles to strengthen and stabilize your spine.
