Weekly Health Talk with Dr. P: Plank Walk and Run


Happy Monday! Start your day off on the right foot with a new episode of "Weekly Health Talk with Dr.P".
Stretch of the Week: Plank walk and run. Engage your core and improve your running efficiency with this exercise. Plus, work on strenghtening your back at the same time!


Alright, Dr. P here. Adding on to our, what we've learned so far. We're going to do a little more advanced modification to challenge you a little bit more. Simply plank walk. All right, assume plank. This is high plank position, you can do this low, but I want her to walk with that arm and that leg at the same time, twice. Okay stop. Now go back and high plank. Relax. You gotta be in shape to really do that but it'll build your core, it’ll build these obliques, and they'll teach coordination. It's just a little more challenge. We're gonna get into a little bit even a little more modification of plank runs. The reason is we're trying to give you something that's safe to do but will build the core back. So, let's put her in plank again, high plank. And we're gonna add one more thing to your routine. This works the lower core, the main one. Forget about the upper abs, they just hold your guts in they really don't have a lot of things to do with your lower back. So, plank run means knee to chest, back. Maintaining glute strength, knee to chest back and forth, back and forth and now, she can pick up the pace a little bit. And we'll allow her to stop, okay. Knees down, maybe go into Child's Pose alright and relax. So that's it, breathe now I don’t want to hear her breathe a whole lot of it. But you want to breathe, very important breathe, breathe, breathe. But that is a plank run which is for the lower abdominal, alright. Thanks.
