So The Future was incredibly nice to me and decided to let me use her as a model for this little video presentation on the exercise everyone does wrong, even though I had just completely ransacked her legs and other body parts in a metabolic conditioning workout, and her ability to stand was limited. I have to apoligize for the audio, though. Apparently when someone is doing a video, young dancer girls decide it’s a good idea to come into an echo-ey room and begin giggling and loud-talking about make-up and stickers and Miley Cyrus and whatever the hell these young girls like talking about. Please crank up the audio.
So what do you think? Post your comments below to create a discussion about whether you feel my way of planking is correct or not. Remember, neutral spine is only applicable during axial loading where gravity is vertically directed through the spine from top to bottom. During horizontal positions, gravity interacts with the spine differently, so it requires a different position to engage muscles properly and save the spine.
Hope this helps, and let’s have a nice round of applause for the FUTURE!!!!
