Too much core?

Ask yourself: Do you really need the core of a pro body builder?

Today MoreCore.org unveils it’s new tagline:

Because you can do more with a strong core.

The former slogan:

Because there’s no such thing as ‘too much core’

was catchy, but didn’t adequately capture the motivation for this website. On top of that, it’s wrong! We don’t all need the mega-core of a professional bodybuilder, for example.

Core training is indeed a good thing and many of us don’t do as much as we should. But like anything in life, it is possible to overdo it based on your current fitness level and risk injury. It’s just human nature to dive in above our heads, especially for exercise enthusiasts & weekend warriors.

So the new MoreCore.org slogan plays less into these gonzo tendencies we have and instead highlights the positive results from having solid core strength: improved sports performance and injury prevention.

The “more” in “MoreCore.org” therefore signifies the following:

  • MORE than just six pack abs – think “whole pillar“: torso, hips, glutes, shoulders, spine
  • MORE than just core strength but functional training, too
  • MORE efficiency and power in your favorite sports
  • MORE injury prevention
  • MO BETTA‘ physical functioning in your real-world daily life
  • Do MORE for your core, but have a goal so you known how much is enough

More For Your Core…

Most of us likely can profit from adding more core & functional fitness to our exercise routines — just how much more is a matter of our fitness goals and current training. Regardless, be cautious and gradual when adding new moves or bumping up the intensity. Go with more reps before adding weight and pay utmost attention to proper form.

As always, listen to your body when something doesn’t feel right.

Sometimes, less is more. 🙂

    Why didn’t you ask me about using my photo? No big deal. I know another body builder who has trouble brushing his teeth because his bulky arms make that activity of daily living almost impossible. It is not an issue for me with my 3 foot long toothbrush.

    Are the first three words actually necessary? “Do more with a strong core” has an implied “You Can…”.

      Thanks for letting me use your ab shot, Doug (I didn’t know you could take pictures in your dreams ;).

      I’ll think about your suggestion for the tagline. My sense is that the tagline seems more natural when phrased as justification to the directive inherent in the domain name: “MoreCore. Why? Because you can…”.
