Posture is Key for Speed

2/ Plank Diagonals
Purpose: Focus on static motor control and maintaining torso and pelvic position during the opposing limb movement.
• Start in a plank position on your elbows with feet at hip-width apart with toes pulled toward shins.
• Using slow controlled movement, lift the opposing arm and leg just off the ground. Make sure not to lift higher than shoulders and hips so that you do not collapse your torso or hip position.
• Also be conscious of maintaining head and neck in line with torso.
Tweak down: Just lift one limb at a time to challenge the plank position.
