In the category of “washboard abs”, this one isn’t particularly interested in how much or how little fat you have. What it’s more interested in is a strong, resilient, and stable core. Including your abs yes, but also glutes, hips, and back.

Nor is the focus on superhuman feats of strength, though certainly one could use these exercises to work towards that. Rather, here we see importance placed on functional performance, mobility, and stability.

Lest mobility and stability seem at odds with each other, understand:

  • By mobility we mean the range of movement we are able to accomplish.
  • By stability, we mean that any movement we make is intentional, and not because we lost our balance.

Functional performance, meanwhile, is a function of those two things, plus strength.

How does the book deliver on this?

There are exercises to do. Exercises of the athletic kind you might expect, and also exercises including breathing exercises, which gets quite a bit of attention too. Not just “do abdominal breathing”, but quite an in-depth examination of such. There are also habits to form, and lifestyle tweaks to make.

Of course, you don’t have to do all the things she suggests. The more you do, the better results you are likely to get, but if you adopt even some of the practices she recommends, you’re likely to see some benefits. And, perhaps most importantly, reduce age-related loss of mobility, stability, and strength.

Bottom line: a great all-rounder book of core strength, mobility, and stability.
