  • Ab Crunches or Core Training: What Has Better Results?  By : Fiona Apple
    Core training is a popular topic in fitness nowadays. Seems like everything abs these days is being inaccurately labeled core which can be confusing. What's the difference between core training (properly defined as functional core performance) and the standard abdominal crunch, and why should you care? You should care because the end result, how your body looks and performs, is significantly profound.

    Let's start with examining both these types of exercises. First of all, "crunch" isn't even a real medical word! It was in fact coined during the early days of bodybuilding. Traditionally a crunch or sit-up is performed lying face up on the ground with bent knees, then lifting the upper torso and knees together. Most anatomical experts define a crunch as a simultaneous flexion of the spine, mainly lumbar, and hips. Crunches primarily train your two, superficial abdominal muscles, the rectus or "six pack" and obliques. The goal of crunches is to build hypertrophy and definition, which is mainly for vanity, according to Dr. Jerrold Petrofsky, Dept. Chair of Physical Therapy at Loma Linda University in California and Steve Thomas, MS, RPT of Steve Thomas PT in Brentwood, California. They state that training just these two ab muscles without properly strengthening and conditioning your entire core produces muscle and structural imbalance in your entire trunk and body, causing pain and back injury. Back pain is the #2 medical complaint Americans have, right behind the common cold (US Consumer Safety Commission).

    The main purpose of functional core training is to strengthen the stabilizer muscles in your entire trunk or core. Your core is defined as the entire region between your shoulders and your hips. Your core is an amazing anatomical composition of about 12 muscles that wrap around your midsection like a back brace. Some of these important muscles are the transverse abdominus, erector spinae, obliques, pelvic floor (PC), illiopsoas, and multifudus to name a few. All body movement stems from your core. The aim of functional core training is to establish a proper of sequence of muscle firing rhythms that will create good, strong upright posture and alignment, a strong back, good balance, gait, and, finally, movement by your legs and arms. Your core is essential for every movement! A balanced, strong body requires a well-aligned, balanced, strong core. From a purely cosmetic point of view, when properly trained the core acts like a girdle; holding and pulling in your entire abdominal region tight and flat- particularly that hard-to-train lower belly pooch sag problem area.

    Core exercises can be done in a variety of positions. The best core moves are performed in an athletic stance position and sometimes use fitness products like a stability ball or bosu to create instability forcing your trunk to instinctively use all your stabilizer, core muscles. Before you begin, the key to a proper core move that completely engages all your core muscles must begin with a correct set up. Concentrate and maintain good or neutral spine alignment before and throughout each and every move. Good alignment is achieved by keeping your ears stacked directly over your shoulders and hips, pulling and keeping your shoulders down, pulling your belly in tight, and doing a continuous, soft Kegel (also called pelvic floor pull-up) exercises. You can find and activate your pelvic floor muscles by stopping your urine mid-stream. Then, you can do a soft Kegel by zipping your pelvic floor muscles up and into your pelvic cavity.

    Most body builders do an endless amount of crunches or sit-ups to achieve flat, sculpted six packs abs. However, because sit-ups only train the two, superficial ab muscles, the biomechanics are incorrect. Crunches or sit-ups do not train the important core muscles that truly act as an abdominal girdle by pulling your mid-section in making it look really flat. Thousands of repetitive, boring crunches won't help you get the flat, sculpted abs of your dreams. Only well executed, functional core performance moves will get you those abs, along with developing a strong, healthy back.
