Core/Trunk Strength

Core strength is essential for the progression of nearly all developmental skills . A weak core can make regular tasks difficult for children such as sitting in a chair, holding a pencil, tying shoes, and engaging in play activities. Signs of a weak core can include slumper or slouched posture, resting arms on table and head in hands, difficulty sitting still and frequently shifting position, or “W-sitting”. Do some of these at home exercises with your child to help them increase their core strength and success in their daily activities:

1. Crab walks

2. Floor activities while lying on belly

3. Bridges

4. Planks

5. Table Pose

We wrote yesterday about how the Phillies have outrighted Scott Kingery off of the 40-man roster, so you can imagine what most of the chatter around the Phillies will be centered around Jose Alvarado Pet Jersey. It one they probably swallowed hard and made, but the fact is that no one in charge of the roster right now was the one that signed Kingery to the extension that is even keeping him on the roster in the first place. If he didn sign that extension, if he simply was allowed to develop at the proper rate in the first place, maybe wee having a different conversation about him today. Instead, we just shake our heads and mutter about it…
