Now this will apply to you as a patient OR as a personal training client. A weak core is a useless core. Unfortunately, a lot of people get off on the wrong foot straight away when trying to strengthen their core.
Core strength is partly about trying to maintain a “brace position” which is what you do when you take a deep breath in and tense when you’re about to lift something, whilst being under load.
Leg raises are a great way to do this. I have filmed a video for you which shows you how to build your core strength step by step
Let me know how you get on and don’t do it if it’s painful OR you’re injured
