34. How much do I need to engage my core?
Show Notes

In this episode, I sit down with physiotherapist, Antony Lo to discuss:

  • Common myths about the core:
    • “ I have a weak core”
    • “You need to actively engage your core all the time”
    • “Suck in your tummy”
    • “Maintain a neutral spine”
    • “Doming/coning = danger”
    • “Your TA isn’t firing”
    • “You need to master exercises on your back before progressing”
  • How we as health care and fitness professionals should continue to question our knowledge base and adapt the messaging we are providing our clients to stay current
  • Difference between what we think we know and what is true

He completed his post- graduate Master in Manual Therapy (Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy) from the University of Western Australia and commenced his Specialisation training in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy. He has been involved in ante-natal and post-natal education and management for his whole career.
