Anti-Rotation Plank Reaches

anti rotation plank

Here’s a great trunk exercise for you to try during your next workout. Anti-rotation exercises are excellent and I’d choose these ahead of crunches every time.

Coaching points:

  • Set yourself in a push-up position but with narrow hands and wide feet
  • Hold a neutral spine position. Keep your tummy tight and squeeze your glutes
  • Reach for your opposite elbow whilst trying to keep your hips completely still (they’ll want to turn so don’t let them!)
  • Start by reaching for the elbows, but to develop the exercise and make it tougher, reach for the opposite shoulder as shown in the video
  • Start by trying five on each side, then add reps when appropriate
