The trunk and lower torso are often neglected and poorly trained parts of the body’s muscle. This region is known as the “center of power” and is responsible for initiating a movement or providing stability link that allows all movements to pass.
These are just a few reasons to strengthen your lower back and abdominal muscles.
- For the body to maintain its balance, agility, coordination, and movement tasks, it is essential that the muscles controlling the runk, low torso, and low torso control the runk.
- This region accounts for 60% of the total body mass.
- Injuries and low back pain can cause injury and disrupt training, leading to missed games. Low back injuries can be prevented by strengthening the trunk and lower torso.
Guidelines for abdominal training
- For each exercise, start with a set of four to six repetitions. You can increase the repetitions per set as your strength improves. Then, gradually increase the number per session. Depending on the raining phase, sets and repetitions may vary. Do not sacrifice form to get more sets or reps.
- Keep your abdominal muscles tight throughout each set. You should not take a break between sets. Also, you shouldn’t rest during a set.
- The “weaker” muscles should be fatigued first. To maximize abdominal strength, you should do the following sequence: 1) Oblique, 2) Lower abdominal, and (3) Upper abdominal. The upper abdominal assistance, including movements in the oblique, lower abdominal, and upper abdominal regions, is important. It’s important to not fatigue the upper abdomen musculature before the other muscles of your trunk and low torso.
- Be balanced in your workouts. To avoid muscle imbalances, train opposing muscles equally. Do several sets of low-back extensions after a abdominal workout.
