Having a “six-pack” abs has almost become a status symbol; that one thing that can make you an object of envy and increase your attraction on the dating market. Especially today in the selfie culture.
Both men and women want it, but what is the effective course of action to take so you don’t end up wasting time, only to gain frustration and decrease your motivation?
Dr. James Vegher, a physical therapist availing himself with some of the latest research, developed a novel method of activating your core muscles through a series of unique ab exercises, the slimming and toning of your waistline and stomach could be produced as a side-effect of these unconventional exercises.*
Dr. Vegher identified two common and foundational mistakes with the conventional methods:
MISTAKE #1 – Your core isn’t working properly in the first place
Research demonstrates that any movement done by your body is first initiated by the core – muscles in the midsection. If these core muscles aren’t working properly, it doesn’t matter how many “ab exercises” you do, the results will be meager at best. And at worst they may inflict back problems and worsen your posture.
MISTAKE #2 – Applying the wrong exercises
Have you noticed the recent trend in the fitness industry of telling you to avoid doing sit-ups and crunches, the classic exercises present in every single movie training montage?
This is due to the fact that they are catching up on studies done years ago, pointing in the direction of plank exercises and Pilates instead. But the problem remains the same, they are just switching from one exercise to another while not focusing on the “core” issue.
Dr. Vegher graduated at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, earning himself a Bachelor of Science Degree in Physical Therapy in 1995.
Later he specialized in Neurological Rehabilitation, working almost exclusively with patients suffering from the effects of spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, stroke, Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s Disease.
He moved up as a supervisor at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Beverly Hills continuing his work with neurological conditions. At this time Dr. Vegher acquired advanced training in Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) and the Maitland method to orthopedic conditions.
Always aiming to perfect himself, Dr. Vegher started his education toward achieving his Doctor of Physical Therapy Degree from Pacific University in 2003. A year later he moved to Santa Cruz where he launched Precision Physical Therapy & Fitness center to establish a new set of standards in physical therapy care. After finishing his project of developing a clinical reasoning tool to help novice physical therapists deal with patients with neurological conditions, he received his Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree in 2007.
Currently, Dr. Vegher is one of below 100 certified Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization practitioners in the US, but he continues his training through the Postural Restoration Institute and Prague School of Rehabilitation.
If you answer YES to any of these questions, it means you may need to reactivate your core muscles if you want real results without suffering any injuries, both in the short and long term.
Extrapolating the findings from the study on infant development, which goes through a series of motion progressions with different threshold phases – standing, walking, running - so too can you train your body to activate these foundational core muscles.
