These are some of the static planks I use to help stabilize my client’s core. Keep the following in mind when doing these planks:
- Keep your shoulder blades in your back pockets.
- Keep your midsection tight.
- If you feel this in your back stop the exercise.
Hold all planks for 20 seconds and repeat 3 times. Each week you will add 10 seconds to your static hold.
Next month I would like to show you some dynamic planks to strengthen the core that are a lot of fun!
Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas!
Be well and live actively!
