Description

Master Trainer Josh Stolz recommends you take this traditional move in new directions. To maximize the move's payoff, you have to get things moving, says Stolz, who uses this 4-move series with his clients. "The logic behind these planks is the multi-directional aspect. We move in three different planes of motion in everyday life. For example, when was the last time you got out of bed in a perfectly straight line? You probably rolled to the side, and pushed yourself up with an elbow. The body is designed to function synergistically to conserve energy and allow us freedom of movement."
