Our weekly Bonus episodes will continue to cover quick topics from strength training to equipment.
Julie Wiebe: Redefining The Core
Julie and Kathryn talk about what the core is, and how it is currently being redefined. Kathryn asks about popular topics like alignment, and why we hear the cue to "drop your ribs" so frequently.

Julie Wiebe is one of the core trailblazers of our time and this interview recaps the more up to date research on this confusing part of the body.
