Aerobic efficiency and fitness can be estimated using the following formula:
INDEX = (Duration of exercise in seconds) x100 =
2(sum of first 3 pulse counts in recovery)
below 55 = poor
55-64 = low average
65-79 = average
I have made some adjustments and critiqued, hopefully without being to critical, ...
LBP and core strengthening
I learned from past reading about the anatomy of the spine. Low back pain is a common ailment experienced by the population as a whole and specifically with the athletic population. Core strengthening is commonly recommended as a treatment and/or prevention method for low back pain. Please read the article entitled, "Hip muscle imbalance and low back pain in athletes: influence of core strengthening."
1. After reading this article, do you think we as human movement professionals are justified in prescribing core strengthening exercises for the prevention and/or treatment of low back pain? What do you think can be effective to apply in my professional practice as a personal trainer. I need another take on this article.
2. How do men and women differ in regards to low back pain? Why the difference?
3. I also need help to track down other articles that either support or don't support core strengthening for low back pain (at least 3, if possible). Thanks.View Full Posting Details
