Today's Edge:

Not your father's side plank. Put some responsible juice in your core training with this one!
_____________________________________

BENEFITS: 
The Plate Side Plank with Rotations targets your core and shoulders. This is a great way to develop stability and endurance of the core to resist extension and rotational forces. The offset weight hold adds a new challenge to the core to have to work with the hips to stabilize versus diagonal forces during rotational movements.

COACHING KEYS:

Push your body away from the floor through your forearm. Keep your glutes engaged and your core short as if you're about to take a punch to the stomach. Avoid sagging into extension through your low back.

HOW TO USE:

Use this on a core focus day or paired with a grip intensive exercise like a chin-up or deadlift. Shoot for 2-4 sets of 6-12 rotations each side.
