Core power on the podium!

What a thrill to see Alexandre B thunder down the mountain to his gold medal victory this week…more thrilling to observe all the principals of core strength in action at such a high level of competition.The announcer whose commentary I listened to referred often to his ” calm quiet upper body ” and the perfect 90 degree angles at his hips and knees.This is the Pilates principal of ” disassociation ” in all its purity! Alexandre’s trunk and spine were rock solid while his hips and knees generated all the power he needed..
