Core - as mentioned throughout the history of this blog, we have provided numerous research articles highlighting the importance of the core for both mitigating risk of injury and improvement of athletic performance. Included here are two key core exercises we use that we find have the largest impact on lower kinetic chain movement.

In addition to increasing activation of the core, we also want to increase activation of the Gmed. The following exercises are a progression series that can be done to increase activation of the Gmed with the use of the CLX.
