Exercise of the Month
December: Swiss Ball Plank
This exercise challenges the upper back stabilising muscles stability and rotation.
Start on your knees with your hands and elbows resting on the ball at a 45 degree angle and your core muscles engaged. Slowly extend up onto your toes. From here, extend through your upper arm and challenge accordingly. A further challenge to the movement would be to rotate through the pelvis to the left and the right then back to the original position, and start the set of movements again.
Repeat the exercise 5 times.
Always seek appropriate professional advice prior to any new exercise activity. If you experience any discomfort, please seek medical attention.
