Reinforcing the Plank
Posted on May 25, 2018 5:00 PM

A key piece of learning from the TRX Suspension Training Course (STC) is the PLANK, one of the primary TRX Foundational Movements and a key piece to the being successful with the TRX Coaching methodology. A strong core is the cornerstone of efficient, strong, and powerful movements; achieving a good active plank is ‘home base’ for stability, to minimize any risk of injury.  

As a reminder of your learnings from the STC, let’s run through an exercise.

SETTING THE STANDARD | WHAT SHOULD BE STABLE VS MOBILE

To set the standard of the plank, or any of the TRX Foundational Movements, remember to run through the following exercise with yourself:

Question 1:  

What should be STABLE?

Answer 1:

For the plank, the whole body should be stable.

Question 2:

What should be MOBILE?

Answer 2:

For the plank, nothing should be mobile. (Except for your eyelids;-)
