“Core strength is the biggest deficiency. The injury of the millennia is the lower back.

Kids don’t work anymore, like bailing hay, shoveling dirt, etc. ... kids don’t even play football in the backyard; they get together to play Madden 2003 on Playstation. The lack of hip flexibility and core strength is the most common weakness. It is not that difficult a program to address, even at the high school level.” – Scott Bennett, Wyoming “The most common deficiency for incoming athletes is their core strength. Incoming freshmen are much bigger and stronger, but they are weak in the lower back and abdominals. The core is vital because it is the link between an athletes upper and lower body.” – Rob Glass, Florida
