I am currently studying for my Diploma in Sport and Reccreation. One of the papers that I am doing at the moment is Physiological Basis of Training and Performance.
For this we have an assignment called "periodisation" where we have to create a 12month resistance training programme, so the emphasis is on STRENGTH training.
I have broken it down into 3 categories:
Upperbody strength (arms etc for sprinting)
Core strength (abs, back for holding position etc)
Leg strength (well for cycling!)
In this thread I would like to discuss WEIGHTS AND RESISTANCE TRAINING FOR YOUR CORE STRENGTH and the discussion as to be not so much what you think is right or should work, but as to what you have/do use, and what does work for you.
Thanks a million
