Core Training – The Dish Exercise
I was first introduced to this exercise when undertaking a gymnastic training course and have since been further introduced to this through crossfit and calisthenics. The dish exercise requires one to be lying on their back and then keeping the feet and hands together and lifting these up off the ground whilst maintaining ones back flat on the ground. This requires one to really engage with their core.
In the image below you will see osteopath Heath Williams of Principle Four Osteopathy demonstrating this at his gym Elite Sports Performance in Spotswood Melbourne.
If you currently suffer from a lower back or neck complaint, please consult with your osteopath before trying this exercise.
