Classical Pilates is the most effective core exercise specific to kicking and punting movement. Period.
After a hip flexor and labrum tear, Jesse Ohliger suffered from hip and back pain for years after injury. He experienced ongoing sciatica, insomnia and lingering pain affecting daily life. He experimented with multiple unsuccessful avenues to correct the injury: NFL rehab, physical therapy, TRX, and multiple “types” of pilates before finally finding Classical Pilates. He used this method to correct himself, and pass it on to his trainees throughout the country. His methods saw better results with quicker and safer development, helping young athletes “activate” undeveloped muscles faster than with their typical high school or college program.
