May 2008 Core Conditioning Group Training

Here's the Core Conditioning training class at Hayashida & Associates Physical Therapy Clinic. For those of you who are athletes, weekend warriors, or just looking for something different than the typical "gym" workout...put this into effect for a month and watch your agility, stability, balance, explosiveness and core strength improve. If you are an athlete, you can utilize this program as a pre-season, in-season or off season program for improving strength and power-endurance. Variations and progressions exist with each exercise.

Consult a physician prior to beginning any exercise program and stop at the onset of any pain or dizziness.
