Trunk work, it all comes down to core stabilization. This is usually the weak chain in our linkage.  This is the biggest reason why we put  the gymnastic static position work at the end of the warm ups.  This is the biggest reason we want you to go heavy when we push the weights.  As long as your form is good, there is hardly a better way to strenghten your trunk.  This is why it drives me crazy when certain Women do not like to go heavy.  For most women in the gym, "going heavy" is hardly even getting above body weight in the back squat, is only a percentage of body weight with the clean.  I must say I am tricking you with the gymnastic static holds, with these you must do body weight. Take a look around, the Women who do "go heavy", are lean and fit.  Please choose to do the same.
