Core Muscle Strength & Stability

Core Muscle Strength and Stability Test

Introduction

Take the Core Muscle Strength and Stability Test to see if your performance is up to par!

What is the point?

Whatever your sport, the Core Muscle Strength and Stability Test will be important. All athletes need strength through the mid-section, it’s the link between the limbs and the source of your power and balance.

If your core strength is poor, your body will move unnecessarily during motion and waste energy. Good core strength brings controlled, efficient movements.

What do you need?

  • Flat surface

  • Mat

  • Watch

How do you do the test?

  • Place your watch on the ground where you can easily see it

  • Start in the modified press up position – with your elbows and feet on the ground

  • Hold this position for 60 seconds

  • Lift your right arm off the ground

  • Hold this position for 15 seconds

  • Return your right arm to the ground and lift the left arm off the ground

  • Hold this position for 15 seconds

  • Return your left arm to the ground and lift the right leg off the ground

  • Hold this position for 15 seconds

  • Return your right leg to the ground and lift the left leg off the ground

  • Hold this position for 15 seconds

  • Lift your left leg and right arm off the ground

  • Hold this position for 15 seconds

  • Return your left leg and right arm to the ground

  • Lift your right leg and left arm off the ground

  • Hold this position for 15 seconds

  • Return to the starting position and hold for a final 30 seconds

What results you’ll get :

Analysis of results comes by comparing them with previous attempts. If you were able to complete this first time, then you have excellent core strength.

If you are unable to complete the assessment, then repeat the routine 3 or 4 times a week until you can.

What is being measured again?

This is a measure of your static core strength and stability.
