Understanding and Coaching the Anterior Core

Written on May 6, 2013 at 7:19 pm, by Eric Cressey

I'm pleased to announce Understanding and Coaching the Anterior Core is available for sale. This 47-minute video was taken at a seminar I gave, and it's available for immediate download and online viewing for a price of just $14.99.


Like many of you, I’ve grown tired of seeing core presentation after core presentation all saying the same thing.  That’s why I opted to attack this considerably differently, discussing:

  • Functional anatomy
  • The interaction of breathing and core stability
  • What implications the anterior core has with respect to “new age” injuries/conditions like femoroacetabular impingement, sports hernias, SLAP lesions, thoracic outlet syndrome, and lat strains
  • Why no two spines are created equal
  • Why two individuals might need the same exercise, but different coaching cues
  • Progressions and regressions to build your anterior core stability exercise library
  • A model for effectively prioritizing anterior core stability exercises throughout the training week

There’s no travel necessary; you can view this presentation right now without leaving your house.

    Most likely will get time to watch it this evening or tomorrow afternoon, will drop you a message when I’ve had the opportunity to watch and write down some thoughts.

    Thanks Mate

    If we have functional stability of the core will it be redundant to buy?

  3. Matt Goodwin Says:

    Do you or are you planning on having an “Understanding and Coaching the Posterior Core”?

  4. Eric Cressey Says:

    Hi Matt,

    No, I don’t have any plans to do so.  Wouldn’t rule it out, though!

  5. Eric Cressey Says:


    There would be a small amount of redundancy with respect to the discussion of zone of apposition, but the progressions are much more thorough, with a greater emphasis on the role of breathing.

  6. Dan Says:

    Thanks, Eric. I found this presentation to be very informative. I look forward to seeing more of these offers from you in the future.

  7. Eric Cressey Says:

    Thanks, Dan!  Lots of stuff at Elite Training Mentorship, too.

    Will this video address any shoulder issues related to core and lat strength, i.e Bursitis?

    If that’s your concern, I’d recommend starting with Functional Stability Training of the Upper Body: http://functionalstability.com/functional-stability-training-for-the-upper-body/
