The Palof Press

The Palof Press exercise has become one of my favourite core exercises.  It requires you to stabilise through the trunk and either hold the weight away from you or you can pulse it in and out whilst maintaining a stable trunk.

Check out the images below that I sourced from Google Images that demonstrate this exercise.

The great thing about this exercise is that there are so many ways to vary it. You can change your stance position.  Change the angle of the cable/band pulley, change the distance you are stabilising from as well as moving the band/pulley.
