The idea of having real control over your body movement sounds great doesn't it? Who wouldn't want that kind of natural support for their back? But how do you train your muscles to get to that point? If your muscles aren't responding the right way when you exercise, how do you get control, so you can workout with correct form?
I've spent more than a decade of my physical therapy career researching so that I could answer those questions for my patients. Chronic pain was slowing their lives down, and I wanted them to have the desire and the confidence to move freely again. I studied training techniques by clinicians, athletic coaches and performing artists. Once I'd seen enough people have breakthroughs with the core strengthening method I developed, I knew I needed to share what I'd learned with a larger audience.
Progressive Core Strengthening will challenge and reprogram your entire core, and it's easy to follow along You'll learn to control your body alignment as you work your way through 6 levels of training, intro to advanced. The training follows a natural progression. New exercise movements build off what you learned from the previous workout. As you go along, you'll be applying fundamental movement skills you learn from the start of your training. This way you can maintain good form even when an exercise is difficult for you.
Until now, the only way you could learn movement skills like what I’m teaching in this program was through one-on-one sessions with a physical therapist, expert personal trainer or Pilates trainer. That’s expensive! But today you can have all the info you need in a thoroughly illustrated, easy to understand, searchable eBook that works like a phone app! You’ll pay much less and you’ll be able to learn at your own pace.
Stories of Success with PCS
At this point you may be wondering how someone could reprogram their muscles just by studying a core exercise book. I would point you back to my teaching method. I took the complex movement of the core muscles and broke it down into easy to understand training exercises. It all starts with simple breathing techniques!
Progressive Core Strengthening has been very helpful for a number of people. Here are some of my favorites. PCS has helped an elderly woman build strength and overcome her hip pain. PCS helped an Ironman triathlete train more efficiently & handle his long bike and swimming sessions more easily. PCS also helped a restaurant owner completely eliminate his back pain.
