Dynamic stability of the inner core.

Dynamic stability is movement with continued integrity. This means that moving parts stay in an appropriate relationship with each other at all times. When clients use their core and abdominal muscles they may think that they need to maintain a constant isometric contraction. This is one way to do abdominal work. It’s important that if clients are working this way that they are also contracting the pelvic floor muscles throughout. Breathing then becomes lateral rib breathing. The alternative is to allow for the inner core to remain in relationship to its components, continually creating support through dynamic stability. This video should help demonstrate this idea.
