Strengthen Your Core And Hips

As an athlete, you need to always look for ways to strengthen your core and hips...one good exercise that you may not be doing is the side plank with lateral hip raise....



1. Start with the side plank, keep your body straight and torso braced (as if taking a punch to the gut).

2. Hold the side plank position for 5 seconds.

3. Raise your top leg and hold for 1 count. That's one repetition.

One neglected area of training for many athletes is improving lateral strength and lateral speed. As an athlete, many of your movements in games involve lateral movements like shuffles.

Part of your athletic "power center" is your core and hips...you need to constantly condition and strengthen them so your body is ready to "fire on demand" in the heat of competition!

Be sure and download your Free Dumbbell and Medicine Ball Metabolic Fat Burner Workouts and start shaping your body faster!

Other things being equal, a muscular, powerful athlete will outperform a fat, slower or skinny, weaker athlete. Sports Fitness Hut's Fat Blaster Athletic Power Training System will give you your "lean and mean" athletic machine!
