Want to stand up tall? Try these plank variations.

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!
