This book isn’t the latest craze to get you six-pack abs or put you on the next 30-day fitness challenge. But, instead, you’ll learn ways to focus on your core as the main area of your body for your physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. You’ll also learn ways to train your body to avoid life-altering injuries like a torn ACL or a back injury.
Dr. Zazulak takes an easy-to-understand and practical approach to improving your core strength and overall fitness, balance, and body flexibility. She not only explains the exercises and their purpose but shares illustrations of how to properly do that particular exercise. Don’t think this is all about crunches and sit-ups because it is not that at all.
I know my core needs some attention and I would also like my balance to be improved. I’m not falling over, but when I bend over or lift a leg to put on a shoe, I can tell my balance isn’t as good as it used to be. I found the exercises easy to learn and could definitely feel the “burn” when doing them.
I also liked how Dr Zazulak focused on breathing techniques as proper breathing is essential to so many parts of our body and also to help reduce stress and anxiety. I’ve especially found these exercises and techniques helpful and refer to them often.
Keep in mind, men’s and women’s bodies are very different and will react to exercises differently. While my husband might like the plyometrics and planks better, I am more into the stretching and yoga poses. You have to find what works best for you.
For anyone wanting to improve their core strength or their balance, work on challenging themselves in their fitness levels, or find ways to prevent injury, this is the book for you. The step-by-step processes will allow those in any fitness level to feel successful and healthier.
