We thought we would share this Vasek Pospisil post match interview with Jim Courrier after his 2nd round win at the Australian Open.

What is the ACE Fitness approach to physical conditioning? It is set on two basic principles: spine stability and hip mobility. To increase performance, we need to spare the spine from counterproductive stress and create good muscular activation and posture. Ultimately this will ensure the best biomechanics-friendly training.
The video is done by Prof. Stuart McGill, the world wide specialist in biomechanics. It debunks a few myths and shows how to utilize the concepts of “super stiffness” and “neutral spine” through a few simple exercises. And remember, core training and a healthy life are the fundamentals on which success can be built for any kind of sport! I trust you will enjoy the video!
