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:
What should be STABLE?
For the plank, the whole body should be stable.
What should be MOBILE?
For the plank, nothing should be mobile. (Except for your eyelids;-)
