Fair enough. I thought it was interesting though because you are straining in the opposite way to most core exercises, including the ab wheel.

I would think it's more hip extension than Core.....

So you just hold it until the weight pile drives you into the floor?

Not sure really, I'm going to try it on Saturday and I will probably stop when form deteriorates.

I love how he is just casually checking his watch.

It is like he is saying "oh, it has been that long! I must have fallen asleep."


He also has calves on top of his shins.



I always thought your "Core", technically includes your lower back muscles also. Your entire trunk actually.

I won't get to try this one until my back gets better.

We have been doing a load of plank holds with our folks...weight on elbows and toes, body rigid. that very simply looking move busts people up. Try a set of Tabatas with that, loads-o-fun.

Regarding "core training" Greg told me it was anything that involved listening to Hank Rollins. it's got nothing to do with abs OR back.
