The revolutionary book by Athletes' Performance President and Founder Mark Verstegen. Released by Rodale Press in January 2004, Core Performance shows you how to use your core to transform your body and your life, turn back the clock, speed up your metabolism, trim your waistline, build muscle, and gain boundless energy. More than a workout routine, Mark's 12-week, comprehensive program reveals the athlete that has always been inside of you.
The Core Program shows you how to develop balanced fitness—strength, muscle mass, flexibility, power, and endurance—without overemphasizing or shortchanging any component. It shows you how to recover from workouts so you get leaner and stronger when everyone else is just getting tired. And it shows you how to eat the right foods to get the body you want and the energy to have more fun with it.
