Weekly Health Talk with Dr. P: Oblique Plank


On this week's episode of "Weekly Health Talk with Dr.P," learn this variation of the plank position that works the muscles alongside your waist, also known as your obliques.
Stretch of the week: Oblique Plank
Complete this exercise to build a stronger, more defined core while preventing lower back and hip.


Alright, Dr. P here. We're going to show you another modification of the plank. In addition, safe. You just got to try it. Again, it's not easy but you got to build up to this. But again, it's safe because it's working the core in this position. So, she's going to assume plank, glutes thighs, good. Knee to elbow, love it. Knee to elbow, I got. Knee elbow. And you want to do maybe do 10-15 do all you can but you'll get tired quick on this one. Especially if you just do the run. So, you can drop down. Relax, Child's Pose, relax...good. So that is, that works your obliques. Obliques are critical to stabilize the lower back. They're even more important than these back muscles right here. We've given you plank obliques; we've given you plank runs and we've given you stationary planks where you just hold. All those can build a routine. Again, you're doing some repetitions, you're doing it till you're tired, relax and then the great thing you can go to Child's Pose. Okay, thanks.
