Had interesting chat with someone at the gym who has had lots of back problems then broke his back. He did yoga but after seeing consultant – they said that it was great about being more supple and flexible but had lost his core.
I had a core in Leeds but seems to have disappeared since so may either try pilates again or find out more yoga core strengthening – beyond plank exercises. Don’t like all pilates classes but can try one as part of gym membership at work and it includes dance students so may be useful.
Will look at increasing weights to assist, in January probably not before then. Also going to try different – more classic brick breaking technique and see how that goes. Depending on various things will try and return to ITF style alongside any WTF training and get away from the excessive sport focus.
