The PreTrain Brace is one of our signature exercises of The PreTrain Fundamentals program. It is a simple concept: an exercise that makes sure you are activating and using your deep core muscles. In practice, it can take a little bit to learn how to do correctly. Our deep core muscles can be largely underutilized in daily life. The diaphragm and pelvic floor muscles are two key components of the deep core muscles that protect our low back and pelvis. Desk work, driving, and daily stress can leave the diaphragm muscle weak. Childbirth and time can leave the pelvic floor muscles weak, leading to complications such as incontinence, low back pain, and overuse injuries.
The PreTrain Brace is important. We put together a troubleshooting video for you to make sure that you can perform The PreTrain Brace correctly, and that you understand how to apply it to your daily life.
