Answers on the questions to the first article

8. 7. 2014

Since I published an article about the workout for total beginners, I received several emails in which people asked me very similar questions, so there are some frequently asked questions and the answers here:

Question: What is the hull corset?

Answer: It is written directly in the article, it is the center of the body, especially the abdominal muscles, the muscles around the spine, pelvis, shoulder blades and chest.

Question: Why is it important to start just with strengthening the hull corset?

Answer: If a person with insufficiently firm hull corset jumps straight into the heavy training (ideally by some hurray style), then he can easily cause an injury or he can build a basics of the chronic health problems in the future. Not everyone must necessarily begin this way: manually working man or active athlete can (or can not) have a hull corset okay, then it is not necessary for him to be so concentrated on that. However, if there's starting working out someone, who's sitting whole day at the office, or a teenager who spent his childhood at the computer, then it's very appropriate. The house is also built from the foundations and the body should be built from the foundations too, step by step.

Question: Several questions about the muscle disbalances

Answer: There are muscles which have a tendency to be flabby and there are muscles which have a tendency to shortening. The problem is, that on the body they are usually against each other: for example the flabby triceps against the shortening biceps. It causes an disbalance, which can cause many problems (probably not in the case of arms, but on the hull, it can significantly distort the spine). Significant health problems can be caused for example by some disbalances on the legs.

So beginner should especially strengthen the rotators of the spine, abdominal and gluteal muscles, latissimus dorsi, lower and middle part of the trapezius along with the rhomboideus muscles, external rotators of the humerus bone, serratus and upper part of the pectoral muscles.

And he should stretch mainly lumbar erectors, hip flexors, neck erectors, upper trapezius, middle and lower part of the pectoral muscles and the rear side of the thighs.

Q: There was mentioned professional literature, which one?

Answer: There have been written many books on a very different level, I would recommend mainly "Tvarování těla" by Petr Tlapák, this is a book standing above others, in my opinion, but unfortunately this is Czech book and I don't know if it was translated to English.

So that's all for the most common questions. Stay in touch ;-)
