5 intense exercises for core and hip stability from the lunge and squat positions. Shoulders are also worked to a great degree.
Stability training is more intermediate or advanced level work, because in order to do stability training right, you already need to be relatively strong and mobile in the positions you want to develop.
In the previous core stability video we utilized many different plank and table positions to develop core stability.
Many people think they are strong but they can't even comfortably hold the lunge position for longer than 10 seconds (in Movement 20XX the goal is to hold the position for 30+ seconds) without starting to shake in a bad fashion. This is because of lack of stability and strength in the hips and knees.
In order to do these drills, you should first master the basic squat and lunge positions with just your bodyweight. It's a misconception to think bodyweight isn't enough when in reality most people would get much better results if they threw away the weights completely.
The purpose of the exercise at hand is to make you stronger, it's not to lift the most weights possible unless you are a competing powerlifter. Too much weight is often a mistake, whereas too little weight is rarely a mistake if you do the exercise correctly.
With these hip and core stability exercises the weight is not even the point. The point of these exercises is to keep your hips and core stable WHILE you are moving the weight (changing your center of mass).
The change in your center of mass will make it harder to balance and keep everything stable. This stability attribute is the quality you want to develop.
