Core Stability
Encompasses active pelvic stabilization, shoulder and hip girdle stabilization. Using muscles such as the transversus abdominis, oblique abdominii, latissimus dorsi, ilipsoas and multifidulis, will provide a stable torso – allowing more efficient movement.

Efficient Movement Patterns
Using only the required muscles to perform a movement in a specific sequence.  Without using unnecessary muscle groups, we save neural energy – making movement more efficient.

Athletes in particular strive to conserve energy to aid in their performance.  If an athlete can obtain core stability and control, they can use the otherwise wasted energy to enhance their performance.
