When you start to take a closer look at the sport, you suddenly hear or read a lot about trunk training. The trunk is the trump card, in Pilates the powerhouse, core stability, etc...

The torso forms the connection of our extremities and should be our stable center in the best case!

Above all, the deep-lying autochthonous back muscles, as well as the lateral and deep abdominal muscles, with their various muscle groups, contribute significantly to the functional stabilization and straightening of the body. 

The term torso is derived from Latin and means "trunk". Just as a tree needs a trunk that prevents the plant from falling even in a storm, a human needs a strong center. The trunk muscles are the power center of your torso. It gives you support - provided it is stable enough.

What exactly is the function and role of the trunk muscles?

Each muscle group has different functions and roles in our body. The central position of the trunk muscles provides stabilization and straightening of the spine during dynamic and static movements.
In addition, well-developed trunk muscles provide clean power transmission and stabilization for all basic movements.
As the muscles are located in the center of our body, they are also called "supporting muscles". Due to their central position, the trunk muscles take on an important supporting and protective function of the spine.

Trunk training not only in sports, but also in everyday life!

No matter what sport(s) you do, you can be sure that you can only benefit from well-trained core muscles. Whether you're jogging, playing tennis, calisthenics, or gymnastics, a stable core makes you more efficient in sports and everyday life.
