18. All About Your Core: It's about so much more than planking!

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

All about your core: It's about so much more than just planking!

I bet you've been really hoping we'd talk about your core one of these days! Our midsections are usually our "trouble areas", whether it's because we carry too much weight there or because we have weak core muscles that are wreaking havoc on the way our bodies feel. On this episode, we're doing a thorough overview of your core... top to bottom, inside to out. 

You're going to learn all about:

  • The muscles that make up your core
  • Your core's primary job
  • The hands-down best core exercises 
  • And what does blowing up a pool toy have to do with it? 


We also touch on Diastasis Recti, how to fire back up deactivated core muscles, and common mistakes I see with core training.
