Can You Spot The Plank Mistake?

This is a blog post by Rowville Personal Training expert Grant Lofthouse

First, let me ask you a question…

What do we do the plank for?

If you answered for core stability then you’re correct 🙂

What is core stability though?

It’s the ability to stabilize the spine.

So when we are talking about the plank and it’s purpose, it’s an anti-extension exercise.

Meaning if we over arch our lower back we are actually performing the plank wrong.

Or in other words…

If you feel any pain in your lower back during the plank you’re performing it wrong.

So how do you do it right?

In the video above I’m going to show you a little trick I learnt in the RKC that helps you perform the plank correctly (and prevent lower back pain).

Enjoy 🙂
