Hi, everybody. Dr. Ryan here. We are going to be going over a series of exercises to progressively get your core stronger using planks.
Let’s get into it.
In this plank series, we’re going to be covering four different modifications which make the plank progressively harder. So, the first one we’re going to do is on the knees. The next one we will do is on the toes. Then we will add some movement to that, and then we will add some instability. We’ll have Caitlin demonstrate here for us.
In the first one, on the knees, we’ll see that Caitlin keeps a very good posture with that low back, and the core is engaged. Same concept with the toes. Good posture and the core is engaged. The next thing we’ll add for Caitlin is the movement of the feet. We’ll have her lift one at a time, trying to keep a very good posture with that upper body as well. Excellent.
Lastly, we will add some instability. Now you can add instability to the upper or lower body. In this case, we will do the upper body for Caitlin. See, she keeps a very good posture with this as well. And that there are four modifications for your planks.
