Core Training To Improve Performance

By March 23, 2010 7 Comments

jessiI have a very special treat for you today!  The past few months I have become friends with a professional athlete named Jessi Stensland.  If you follow triathlons at all, you certainly know her name.  She contacted me when she was in town a couple months ago as she was touring the country teaching her workshops teaching average joes like you and me how to run better and how core strength plays a huge role in performance and health of the body.

She has worked with the highest level sports performance coaches in the world and knows more about the body than I probably ever will in my lifetime.  Check out this video we did at one of my bootcamps and learn how you can become more aware of your core and posture.

Here is an email I received from Jessi, I highly recommend going if you like to run:

Touching base – Madison MovementU workshops are coming up next weekend, March 27-28th. GOT RUNNERS?? Saturday is perfect eye opener – 12-5pm – about the body and running form. It’s been amazing to see people of all levels blown away about how much they DON’T know about running form and how to put into play some pretty basic principles to take so much stress off their body and mind – when training for running and triathlon…As I mentioned when we met – the way the workshops are designed – they are super complimentary to the efforts of trainers and coaches as they empower athletes w/ a better understanding of their body and the relating all their hard work in the gym directly to their swim, bike, and run efficiency and injury resistance.

Saturday’s half day workshop is focused on movement/lecture and running form and function. Sunday’s full day event is the same but finishes up with swim, bike and recovery techniques in the second half. All details are online at www.movementu.com.

Anyone you know who’s training for a running race, triathlon, or thinking about it – and you feel they could benefit – let em know.

Save $30 when you register for the full day event with code: DUSTINMAHERFITNESS

Check out this video that will help you find your inner core and improve posture!
