I've read things all over about how important it is to have good core body strength, and the benefits of such. I seem to remember reading that core body strength is one of the big things to invest in as a fighter, and that you can only work everything else so much with a weak core, and then you reach a point where you have to build core strength to continue any further. Now, as I said, thats all things I just seem to remember reading, so if its all hogwash I wouldn't be surprised. ANYWAYS! What exactly is considered 'core strength'? I had assumed this was things like Abs/Chest/Shoulders/Obliques/Lats/Back. Is this what is meant by 'the core?'
