Perhaps he's referring to it in the Pilates sense of the word. Read about some NFL linemen giving up weightlifting and taking up Pilates instead.

They work hard on finding the right combination of functional speed/strength/power/endurance/balance/agility. They do O-lifts and other
Nice website. The O-lift isn't in one of their video exercises. They had references to O-lift trainers. What is an O-lift?

That was my meaning. "Core strength" has become a buzz word and now a cliche. Some innovative trainers realized a while back that standard weight lifting routines (notice I didn't say strength training) don't make you a better athlete. One name that comes to mind is Mark Verstegen, who takes college athletes and preps them for pro combines. His philosophy is train movements, not muscle groups, and he concentrates on mid-body parts.

Now every aerobic instructor seems to have a DVD promoting core strength, which usually means sit-ups on an exercise ball.

i have been running 4 miles a day and then doing sprints trying to bring my recovery time down. Talked to my recruiter today and he gave me an assignment to see if i could be at 6 miles by next week. I kinda get the feeling there will be puke on the track tonight.

On top of my usual body weight PT, running, and weight lifting...

Ive added cross country trail running.

Ive also hung about twenty foot of heavy rope in my backyard for climbing and Im thinking of building a seven foot wall like you see in conditioning courses.

Ive also started doing one hundred yard sprints with BA, LBV, and ruck upon recommendation of a member here.



(edit spelling)

ccrn, before installing a wall, might I recommend putting up a pull-up bar? The versatility of a simple pull-up bar is much greater than a wall for developing overall fitness (pull-ups, chin-ups, abdominal and back work, shoulder and lat development, etc).

CCRN,
Here is a mod you might want to make to make te pull ups more interesting. Learned this in college from an NCO who was also a Heerbergsfuhrer (SP? 10th Groupers?). Take a piece of PVC pipe, about six inches inner diameter, and place it over the bar. Now try to do the pull ups. It is really ingenious actually, it forces you to goose neck your wrist in order to stay on it, and it also prevents you from kipping you way up. To make it really interesting, have the pull up bar suspended (we used rope at threaded through the bar).

Herresbergfuhrer...and would you be so kind as to PM the name of the individual to me...? i worked with the first five or six who were qualified, helped screen another half dozen or so potential candidates...

BTW, Bergfuhrers had a lot of perverse ways to do PT...

Apart from that, I finally ought to get my ar** up and start a strict running regime, and fartlek, and hang up a punching bag......

Just started bodyweight only training tonight. Seems like I got much much more of a workout than when I'm using the free weights.

Starting rock climbing this weekend, so I'll see how that helps improve the upper body too.
