using her Spinal Triangulation(R) Technique in preparation for London 2012 Olympics.
"This core workout is unbelievably hard and precise" states Lars, "Truly unbelievable!!!"



"Great performance's come down to
Simple Geometry.
We call it Spinal Triangulation®
and we teach it SIMPLY
on the AB-Inforcer!"

  Spinal Triangulation(R) is the foundational cornerstone to improving “postural awareness”, and to “teaching the duplication of functional movement in neutral spine form” which includes spine sparing techniques such as bracing, co- contraction, and lumbo-sacral coordination.




Spinal Triangulation® is the scientific theory of core stability which involves two intersecting triangles. Each triangle consists of three critical points of stability for the spine.  This Patented technique was invented by Lee Brandon, CSCS and has been used for over 30 years to duplicate great performances and spine sparing secrets for Bad backs to Elite Olympians!

The AB-Inforcer® Core Bio feedback Trainer is an educational tool which is used as a critical pre-step inside the Spinal TriangulationTM Theory of Core stability. This important supported first step allows the professional to quickly identify muscular imbalances, ROM deficits and faulty motor patterns which can affect performance. The professional then uses the AB-Inforcer® to initially teach the concept of bracing in a supported neutral spine posture. The next step is to systematically help the client bridge the gap between bracing in a non weight bearing setting to bracing in better posture during weight bearing functional movement. This supported to unsupported progression of simple to complex movements provides the postural awareness and core stabilizing skills necessary to expedite the client’s ability to quickly progress to improved performance.


Some simple to complex progressions are:


1. Lying Supported 2D with no load
2. Lying Supported 2D with load 





Use the AB-Inforcer Biofeedback
on the wall
to Triangulate the spine to teach
good head/ neck/ lumbar positioning skills.
3. Standing supported (against a wall or on a shuttle) with two feet 
4. Standing supported with one foot 
Extensor endurance in neutral


"
Take learned core motor patterns and translate to "hip hinging skills"
while using additional tools in your arsenal to separate spine function from Leg function.

Postural awareness and performance go hand in hand...
Understanding how to
load the spine
and maintain those critical angles...



while loading and compressing the spine
without buckling is one of the secrets!
Overhead squat teaches all systems to coordinate together and Triangulate the spine and
duplicate great angles while performing.








5. Standing unsupported 3D with no load (Squat sequence above)
6. Standing unsupported 3D with load(Overhead Squat above)















This hanging row assumes that Spinal Triangulation 
is being maintained throughout.
If form is lost, the athlete is stopped!






































7. Standing/ Hanging Unsupported 3D on an unstable surface with two feet (hanging row above) 
8. Standing/Hanging Unsupported 3D on an unstable surface on one foot


Using this Spinal Triangulation® technique with the AB-Inforcer® you will be able to expedite your clients understanding and application of difficult motor patterns and ensure progression to improved performance.
Cell phones work this way.  When one dials 911, 3 cell sites reverse triangulate your position and where they overlap is where you are!  Great performances can be duplicated the same way.

Lars Arne Frölander (born 26 May 1974 in Boden) is a Swedish swimmer. He grew up Ornäs in Borlänge Municipality. He competed in 5 consecutive Olympic Games (1992, 1996, 2000, 2004 and 2008). The highlight of his career was when he won the gold on the 100 metre butterfly event at the Sydney Olympic Games in 2000. A couple of months earlier he twice broke the world record in the men's 100 m butterfly (short course). After some difficult years he made a successful comeback at the European Short Course Swimming Championships in 2005 when he won his third gold of the competition.
