The high plank position improves full body strength and stability. It challenges the ability to create full body tension and hold it for a period of time. Here are a few key points that will improve your technique:
Position your wrists directly underneath your shoulders – this is our most stable position. Avoid having your hands out in front of your body.
In order to create stability and tension through our shoulder joint we have to actively push the floor away. Don’t let your shoulder blades sink down towards each other.
We want to maintain a neutral spine and rigid core. Squeeze your glutes and keep your body in a straight line. Avoid raising your hips too high or letting them sag too low.
