Background Poor core stability is linked to a range of musculoskeletal pathologies and core-strengthening programmes are widely used as treatment. Treatment outcomes, however, are highly variable, which may be related to the method of delivery of core strengthening programmes. We investigated the effect of identical 8 week core strengthening programmes delivered as either supervised or home-based on measures of core stability. Methods Participants with poor core stability were randomised into three groups: supervised (n=26), home-based (n=26) or control (n=26). Primary outcomes were the Sahrmann test and the Star Excursion Balance Test (SEBT) for dynamic core stability and three endurance tests (side-bridge, flexor and Sorensen) for static core stability. The exercise programme was devised and supervised by an exercise physiologist. Results Analysis of covariance on the change from baseline over the 8 weeks showed that the supervised group performed significantly better on all core stability measures than both the home-based and control group. The home-based group produced significant improvements compared to the control group in all static core stability tests, but not in most of the dynamic core stability tests (Sahrmann test and two out of three directions of the SEBT). Conclusions Our results support the use of a supervised core-strengthening programme over a home-based programme to maximise improvements in core stability, especially in its dynamic aspects. Based on our findings in healthy individuals with low core stability, further research is recommended on potential therapeutic benefits of supervised core-strengthening programmes for pathologies associated with low core stability.

Background & Aims: Aerobic exercise reduces liver fat and visceral adipose tissue (VAT). However, there is limited data from randomized trials to inform exercise programming recommendations. This study examined the efficacy of commonly prescribed exercise doses for reducing liver fat and VAT using a randomized placebo-controlled design. Methods: Inactive and overweight/obese adults received 8weeks of either; i) low to moderate intensity, high volume aerobic exercise (LO:HI, 50% VO2peak, 60min, 4d/week); ii) high intensity, low volume aerobic exercise (HI:LO, 70% VO2peak, 45min, 3d/week); iii) low to moderate intensity, low volume aerobic exercise (LO:LO, 50% VO2peak, 45min, 3d/week); or iv) placebo (PLA). Liver fat (spectroscopy) and VAT (magnetic resonance imaging) were measured before and after intervention. Results: Forty-seven of the 48 (n=12 in each group) participants completed the trial. There were no serious adverse events. There was a significant change in group×time interaction in liver fat, which reduced in HI:LO by 2.38±0.73%, in LO:HI by 2.62±1.00%, and in LO:LO by 0.84±0.47% but not in PLA (increase of 1.10±0.62%) (p =0.04). There was a significant reduction in VAT in HI:LO (-258.38±87.78cm3), in LO:HI (-386.80±119.5cm3), and in LO:LO (-212.96±105.54cm3), but not in PLA (92.64±83.46cm3) (p =0.03). There were no significant differences between the dose or intensity of the exercise regimen and reductions in liver fat or VAT (p >0.05). Conclusion: The study found no difference in efficacy of liver fat reduction by either aerobic exercise dose or intensity. All of the aerobic exercise regimens employed reduced liver fat and VAT by a small amount without clinically significant weight loss.
