To be clear...

I understand the importance of core training.

In swimming you have months... years... of kick kick kick kick kick kick. why? because kicks suck. all of the speed comes from arms. but arms are easy. and kicks are hard. and sucky. and at the end of the day (eventually) all of that training in kick kick kick kick kick kick -- pays off.

and you only get to swim (at speed - max effort) relatively rarely. because doing it *well* involves kick kick kick kick kick kick -- that wins the race. training max effort is *fun* but *unproductive* with respect to technique that wins the race... eventually.

(and of course things are so very elite that it's genetics and steroids that wins the race actually... but ALL OF THAT STILL is built on foundation).

and in weight training and a bunch of other sports generally... maybe even with kick kick kick kick... it is about core development. and how it takes years...

in olympic lifting...

there is something hard to quantify about the squat patterning...

in most sports, i guess. it's the endurance pay-off. of many hours spent on the fundamentals.

the work.

for the few minutes (or seconds) of pay-off.

and what is holding NZ back is one of those core, fundamental things... mastery of which slingshots you... most places.
