Core stability is considered fundamental for optimized whole-body movement. Functionally, core stability is partly reflected in the ability of the trunk to maintain or return the body to equilibrium when challenged by both expected and unexpected internal and external perturbations. 1 , 2 While no

control can be altered with training. A variety of training approaches have been adopted in ACL prevention programs, including neuromuscular control training, core stability training, balance training, and plyometric exercise. A common goal of these prevention programs is to reduce knee valgus and

The core is at the center of most sports movements. What the core musculature is, how it is evaluated, how it is trained, and how it is applied to functional performance can sometimes be confusing to coaches. The benefits of a sound, research-based core training program is essential to all sport; therefore it must be included in coach’s education. The core musculature is separated into two systems: local (stabilization) and global (movement). Exercises can be separated into three categories: core-stability, core-strength, and functional exercises. A multifaceted approach that addresses the three planes of movement combining medicine-ball work, body-weight circuits, controlled movements, abdominal exercises, dumbbell complexes, and Olympic lifts can provide physiological and biomechanical advantages that enhance preparation for most every sport.
