10/10 Pull Through Stabilizer with Dumbbell
20 Split Jumps
Planks are one of the most comprehnsive exercises out there. You use the entire body to hold a proper plank: shoulders, chest, core & hips, back, legs… So what better position to add movement to?
In a straight arm plank it’s important too keep the shoulder solid – pushing the floor away the whole time. You don’t want to dump into the shoulder. This means you’re recruiting your chest and back to hold your form. You especially want to keep this in mind when rotating in the plank position – like in this video.
When you rotate and stabilize, make sure you’re reaching for the ceiling. This helps you maintain that solid plank and helps keep you from falling over like you would if you just ‘rotated’ without stabilizing.
Place the dumbbell far enough away so that you have to thread through and reach for it with the other hand. This will give you a large range of motion to shoot for – a good challenge for your core;)
