Why is the Trunk Lift Assessment Important??

The trunk lift assessment is a very important test because it directly shows the strength and flexibility of the lower back muscles.  Many people believe that the "core muscles" are only the abdominal muscles but they do indeed include the lower back muscles.
          "Core Muscles" = Obliques
                                        Lower Back
Many people only exercise the abdominals and the obliques, while ignoring the lower back muscles.  This test will give students the insight on whether or not they need to focus more on their lower back muscles.
