Build a stronger core to run faster

A couple of decades ago, the likes of Ryan Giggs were scoffed at by some old-school football types because they saw the benefits of yoga, pilates, and other targeted exercises that strengthen the core.


But these days – perhaps after witnessing Giggsy and others enjoying implausibly long careers – everyone wants the toughest core available. Get those foundations right, and you’ll be moving faster than ever: and these drills from core know-it-alls Back2Action will definitely help you get there…
