Core Training, Misunderstood

What's the difference between your core and pillar? Most people think your abs and lower back comprise your core, but in fact, these muscles alone don't provide the strength and stability you need. As performance specialist Nick Winkelman explains in this video, all the muscles that support your hips, torso, and shoulders, which we refer to as the "pillar," is the foundation for movement. Understanding this important distinction will help you train your body more effectively.
