Peer to Peer Learning Series: Seated and Standing Core Exercise Variations
Instructor: Sarah Zahab, BSc, R.Kin, CSEP-CEP
We need our core muscles to stabilize us during seated and standing dynamic postures. It’s helpful and effective to include seated and standing core work in our programming. These exercises are often excellent alternatives when your clients are unable to get on the floor due to various barriers. We often stick to floor crunches, planks and bugs but there also are a number of efficient exercises that can be performed from a seated or standing position. These can effectively target the multifidus, transverse abdominus and internal obliques without neck strain, crunching or being stuck on your back. Whether your clients are physically unable to get on the floor or if you’re looking for more functional upright core variations, this session will provide numerous examples. Join us and walk away with functional, purposeful and effective core work that your clients and participants will benefit from.
