Show me a guy or gal with six-pack abs; and I’ll show you someone with a dysfunctional back. The Rectus Abdominus muscles, the ones that give you that ripped look (if you can see them) are not only NOT part of ‘the core,’ they are developed at the expense of the core. For that reason, and that reason only, Dr Lee doesn’t sport the sixer ;).
There are 2 types of muscles. Phasic and static. In other words, on/off and on all the time.The Rectus is an on/off muscle, designed only for brief movements. Static muscles like the core are deigned to be on all the time to provide support and stability. When one spends all their time working on the phasic muscles like the rectus to get that 6-pack look; they are not properly developing the other muscles of the abdomen and thorax that make up the core. Which means less stability for the spine. Which leads you open to back problems such has herniated discs, bulging discs and degenerative disc disease just to name a few.
That’s why the Bel Air Chiropractors here at Susquehanna Spine & Rehab always recommend a well rounded workout that focuses on health, not just looks.
