to be fair, it needs to be hank rollins pre-2000 or so. I can't believe I'm admitting it, but dude has lost his edge. hard to stay pissed off for 40+ years, I guess. Although I'm pretty sure Nietzche did it.

Simple, practical definition of core training: anything that promotes the transmission of force from legs to arms (and vice-versa). So, for me, the core includes shoulders, glutes, and hip flexors.

Ok Mark, there you go getting all "sciency"...where will a tight, technical defeniton get us!

Good stuff. I think if we pestered Coach Sommer on this topic he would have a similar opinion to you Mark, with the possible expansion of the "core" extending from the earlobes down to the toes. Gymnastics tight is TIGHT!
