Abstract

Core training is an essential component of physical preparation programmes for
athletic populations and a fundamental part of exercise regimes designed to reduce the symptoms of lower back pain within the general population. Whilst there has been a high degree of research surrounding the core and its involvement in effective movement and injury reduction, scope exists for the development of a model that helps practitioners design appropriate programmes with sufficient variation to maintain adherence and enjoyment. This article outlines a simple model for practitioners to follow when designing and modifying training programmes designed to target the musculature of the core.
