Core training in Fitness Forum Posted June 23, 2004 Well I'm definitely not up to speed on all the new factions of intrinsic muscle group training cults, but I did watch my girlfriend do Pilates the other day. Basically I suck ass and couldnt pull my big 6'6" 200lb self up a 5.7 hand crack. THis pissed the hell out of me and I realized I'm plenty strong enough but I lack agility and grace. So I thought I would work on balance and becoming premeditated in my movements. Some article or another had a great breakdown of different types of workouts, and I learned about "core" training. Being able to transfer energy from top to bottom and vice-a-versa smoothly and efficiently would probably be helpful for gaining "the flow", so I figured I'd throw it out there.
