Stop sucking in your stomach all the time — it could be bad for your health

Thanks to Julie Wiebe for this reflection on an article that appeared in the Washington Post.

"I've been working for a lot of years to try to get the message out to consider controlling the centre as the work of a TEAM of muscles, and stop over-relying on an ABDOMINALS-only strategy. It's been an uphill battle, but heavy reliance on ABS is now widely understood as an issue that is a contributor to many of the issues we see in pelvic and musculoskeletal health.

Thankfully the Washington Post reached out to try to understand the message and shed some clarity on the issue."
