Quizzes are based on content from our most popular Expert Articles, grouped together by topic.
While there was some great information presented in these articles, I would have appreciated more science-based articles referenced. Also, while reading the instructions for core exercises, it didn't state to activate the core when doing exercises - glute bridges, single-leg deadlift, bicycles, etc. Each instruction should begin with engages your core or "pull your belly button into your spine," or if you are on the floor, "to not let your back come off the floor." Most trainers don't explain this properly and most clients don't think about which defeats the purpose of training your core. I was disappointed in these articles and lack of cueing for clients.
