Exercise Of The Week: Plank Using A Wobble Cushion

Planks are easy to do anywhere and they work a large group of muscles including your core, biceps, glutes, and even your neck muscles. A wobble cushion requires an additional layer of stability and increase the difficulty of the exercise.

  • Position yourself in a push-up position, with the wobble cushion under your arms.
  • Lower your elbows onto the cushion, as seen in the image below. You may need to shift to prevent the cushion from sliding around.

  • Once you’re in a stable position, gradually work towards holding a 1-minute plank. Then add an additional fifteen seconds, working towards longer increments as your strength increases.

Please speak to your provider before starting any new exercise regimen.
