Drawing In Article

Excellent article in todays New York Times on "Drawing in." The title of the article is:"Everything you knew about good abs may be wrong." It was written by Paul Scott who did a great job reseraching the article. Here is the link http://www.nytimes.com/2007/02/22/fashion/22FITNESS.html?pagewanted=2&_r=1&ref=fashion

The topic has been turned upside down and STILL very few people get it.

Here's an interesting tidbit:

I've done workshops with Paul Hodges who is one of the "drawing in" pioneers and he doesn't agree with how most people are using his research.

I've had a lot of correspondence with Stu McGill, of Low Back Pain research fame, and he encourages an abdominal brace in lieu of low threshold recruitment or in other words he feels isolating transversus is a problem in and of itself…

What's so interesting is that NEITHER of them truly understands each others research and the low threshold approach turns into the abdominal brace approach pretty fast....sure, they are different, but not as far apart as people think...

Lastly, NO ONE is talking about a total body coordinative (feedforward) system that encompasses the transversus or in other words train total body balance in gravity and the core gets naturally integrated. The isolation of the core is ONLY for people in rehab and/or with highly specific needs...

Sorry about any grammar issues; wrote in this in 30 secs flat...
