Do you plank correctly?


Do you plank correctly? Test yourself for 30 seconds (be as rigid as possible)

1. Drop to a plank on forearms

2. Place a pillow, yoga block, or soccer ball between your legs (squeeze the object for the whole 30 seconds)

3. Pull the belly button in BUT fill the cylinder by squeezing out (you should be tight all over – front, back, sides)

4. Pull shoulders away from your ears and activate your lats like you are holding magazines under your arm pits. This drill is about activation, engagement, and maximizing muscle recruitment. You should be shaking at 30 seconds if done correctly. That is core training my friends. Trainer Todd Jones demonstrating a plank
