CHAPTER THREE

FOREARM PLANKS

INCREASE YOUR RESISTANCE TO AMP UP INTENSITY

In this chapter, everything comes back to center with forearm planks. This is a progression of your full plank; all of the same mechanics and rules of full plank apply, but here you work from the forearms instead of the hands.

Incorporating forearm planks into your training is beneficial because as your center of gravity moves closer to the floor, your core must work harder to support your bodyweight.

Forearm planks are also ideal variations for individuals with wrist problems or pain. The variations of forearm planks in this chapter use bodyweight only and require no equipment.
