Abs versus core gets broken down by our Education Director and Master Coach Aaron Guyett. He then gives you a workout with ab and core exercises, and goes on to explain how to set-up this effective workout within a program.
In the first part of the video, Aaron Guyett demonstrates a few exercises to include in your next AB & CORE WORKOUT with some super sweet music.
The next portion, break down the difference between "ab" workouts and "core" workouts.
I also break down a very thorough and effective way to train both abs and core at the same time with battle ropes.
After breaking down the workout, I then talk through how I would put this workout into a program, and how I would set it up for progress (or improved adaptation).

Battle Ropes are ropes used to improve fitness capacity in a myriad of different movement patterns and power outputs and methods of use.
It is estimated that ropes have been used in human history for longer than clay, iron, bronze, and steel. Most likely humans have been braiding or twisting animal hair or plant fibers together to transfer human force to objects, animals, and constructed items since the dawn of man and woman.
There is evidence of rope twisting tools that date back 28,000 years ago, according to Meredith F. Small (April 2002), "String theory: the tradition of spinning raw fibers dates back 28,000 years. (At The Museum).", Natural History, 111.3: 14(2).
There is recorded history of Egyptians using ropes to pull heavy objects (build pyramids), bind heavy and loose objects/people, tie off animals, and help sail boats from approximately 4000 to 3500 BC. http://www.madehow.com/Volume-2/Rope.html...
This post contains the first 10 Ways to be a better coach.
Are you a good coach?
Do you want to be a better coach?
Most good coaches would agree that they can get better.
Yet I would put all of the money in all of my bank accounts that EVERY great coach spends weekly time becoming a better coach.
“Good is the enemy of great. And that is one of the key reasons why we have so little that becomes great. We don't have great schools, principally because we have good schools. We don't have great government, principally because we have good government. Few people attain great lives, in large part because it is just so easy to settle for a good life.”
I have had plenty of good coaches, but I couldn't tell you all of their names.
Now, my great coaches? I have only had a few, and I could tell you their names, as well as the specific effects they had on my life.
The question, "are battle ropes good?" is sort of asking if money is good?
It depends on if you have the knowledge to use it well, you are using it well, and it is helping you get to an ethical end-result.
If you do not have very much knowledge of what money is, how it works, and why people use it, I am guessing you would either be intimidated by it, dislike it, or even fear it.
Humans will always fear the unknown.
I think it was said best by H.P. Lovecraft, when he said, "“The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown” in his book Supernatural Horror in Literature.
For those of you that are well-acquainted with money, probably like it, maybe even love it, but we have to be careful, because if we start to worship it, we may lose all other important things in our life because of greed.
Like any tool, money and battle ropes should be learned, understood, and used well.
I cannot tell you how many...
