With Complete Core, Coach Mike Boyle takes you through his latest methods and proven protocols for training the core. Complete Core is a product designed by coaches for coaches. It is a comprehensive system that addresses all aspects of core training for sports and fitness. With over thirty years of experience working with all levels and abilities from professional and elite athletes to youth athletes and beginners, Mike Boyle explains and demonstrates how to properly execute a core training regimen for any person.
With so many different philosophies about core training available, one of the main objectives of Complete Core is to clear up some misconceptions and disagreements about core training. The idea is to highlight the similarities in core training, instead of the differences, in order to make a complete core training system that works.
The Complete Core program describes the science and rationale behind particular methods of core training. It undoubtedly addresses the ‘what’ and ‘how’ of core training: what exercises to do and how to do them, through perfectly executed demonstrations showing exactly how to perform over 60 core training exercises. More importantly, however, Complete Core addresses the ‘why’ and the importance of core training: Why are we choosing the exercises we are doing? Why are anti-rotation, anti-lateral flexion, and anti-extension important?
With Complete Core, Mike Boyle addresses when to train the core, how to train the core, how much core training should be implemented (volume, reps, time), the role of the core (and real-world anatomy), how breathing is involved and affects the core (and how to breathe correctly), what to avoid, developmental progressions and regressions, and exact exercises to use.
Complete Core was designed to really make someone think about what they are doing from a core training perspective, to hopefully make them question some of the core training processes they currently utilize, and to ideally inspire them to change some of those processes with their athletes and/or clients. Coaches will be able to provide a better training experience for their athletes/clients who will ultimately benefit from this product. Coaches will be able to design core training programs that emphasize injury reduction with the goal of improved performance.
With Complete Core, coaches will be able to use experienced scientifically proven core training processes with their athletes to produce measurable results.
