For the 2nd year in a row Elite will be teaming up with Elite member Amy Firrell and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to raise some money for a great cause!

Who: All are welcome to join (young and old) in this fun workout session - so be sure to pass the word along!

What: Leukemia and Lymphoma Charity Workout Session

Where: Elite Sports Performance and Fitness (click the link for directions)

When: Saturday April 29th at 9 AM

Why: To raise awareness and money to defeat a terrible disease

Cost: $10/person or $20/family (all proceeds will be donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society)

This August will mark 2 years of remission from Hodgkins Lymphoma for Amy and she wants to continue raising money to help defeat this terrible disease.

Amy will be partaking in a Team in Training Ride where she will be riding 72 miles to raise awareness and to continue the fight to end blood cancer. This year Amy has decided to devote her ride in honor of a very special young man from the Mentor Community - Jacob Rago. Jacob was a student at Mentor High School with one of Amy's sons. Jacob lost his life to Burkitt's Lymphoma at a age of 16. So again, please help us raise awareness and money to end this terrible disease!

If you cannot attend our Charity workout session - you can still donate to Amy's cause by visiting her page here.

Thanks for your help and support!

UNFORTUNATELY, WHEN MOST PEOPLE HERE “CORE” THE FIRST (AND OFTEN TIMES ONLY) THOUGHT THAT COMES TO MIND ARE THE AB MUSCLES THAT MAKE UP THE FAMOUS “SIX PACK”. EVEN WORSE, WHEN PEOPLE DESIGN CORE TRAINING IN THEIR TRAINING PROGRAM THEY ONLY INCLUDE EXERCISES THAT ARE GEARED TOWARDS CREATING THIS “SIX PACK”. WHILE THE SIX PACK LOOKS NICE, IF IT’S THE STRONG, STABLE, AND FUNCTIONAL CORE THAT YOUR AFTER, THEN YOU NEED TO OPEN UP YOUR PLAYBOOK WHEN IT COMES TO CORE TRAINING.

GENERALLY SPEAKING, THE CORE CONSISTS OF ALL THE MUSCLES THAT EXTEND FROM THE KNEES UP TO THE SHOULDERS. WORKING INDEPENDENTLY, THE CORE CONSISTS OF THREE SECTIONS: INNER, AND TWO OUTER CHAINS. MOST PEOPLE FAIL TO REALIZE THAT ONE OF THE TWO OUTER CORE CHAINS EXTEND ALL THE WAY FROM THE HAMSTRINGS TO LAT MUSCLES LOCATED IN YOUR UPPER BACK. THEREFORE, WHEN WE PERFORM EXERCISES SUCH AS THE SQUAT AND DEADLIFT WE ARE INADVERTENTLY TRAINING AND STRENGTHENING OUR CORE.

CORE EXERCISES CAN BE CATEGORIZED AS EITHER AN ISOLATIVE CORE STRENGTH SUCH AS PLANKS OR A DYNAMIC CORE STRENGTH WHICH INCLUDE SQUATS AND DEADLIFTS. THE IMPORTANCE OF YOUR CORE IS MORE THAN SIMPLY DEVELOPING THAT SEXY “SIX PACK”. RATHER YOUR CORE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR CONNECTING YOUR UPPER AND LOWER TORSO, ALLOWING YOU TO EXECUTE DAY-TO-DAY TASKS AS WELL AS SPORT SPECIFIC MOVEMENTS. WITHOUT A PROPERLY DEVELOPED CORE, ATHLETES WILL SEE A DROP OFF IN ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE AS WELL AS BECOME MORE PRONE TO INJURY, AND EXPERIENCE BACK PAIN. A CORE THAT IS FUNCTIONAL WILL ALLOW FOR IT TO ACT AS IT WAS INTENDED TO: STABILIZE THE TORSO, PROTECT THE SPINE AND TRANSFER FORCES.
