    Scientific Core Conditioning is the most comprehensive, in-depth course available on this subject. Fully updated, with many new sections, assessment techniques and exercises, this course builds upon the framework of the hugely popular Scientific Abdominal Training. Expand your knowledge of the abdominal musculature and its biomechanical relationship to the entire kinetic chain, when applied to the prevention of back pain, maintenance of good posture and optimal sports performance.

    This course takes approximately 16-24 hours to complete, depending on how many times you practice the assessments and exercises shown in the course.
