Topic - Core strength disappearing first

Kevin Woods - on 22 Feb 2014
I'm really into my hard bouldering at the moment, and I've got this move that needs a lot of core strength/body tension to move feet from one side of the overhang to the other. Essentially half way to a front lever.

Anyone else ever notice that when you get tired, your core seems to go first?

Perhaps a better way to say it is my body tension disappears before my arms/fingers do.

Whenever I do a move on it's own that only works with correct body tension, it's almost easy. The minute I've done five or ten moves (enough to power me out a bit) leading into this move, I'm just slightly too tired to keep the body rigid, and I fall on that move.

Anyone any thoughts as to how to work on this? Can this be trained? More core?
