CORE TRAINING : The ' Pallof Press' is named after physical therapist John Pallof. Also referred to ( dependant on equipment ) as a Cable Core Press. What makes this exercise so beneficial is the fact that it trains the core for what it’s actually designed for, stabilization, protection, rotation, balance, extension, spinal & pelvic support etc. Have a think about your every day activities & the cores main functions, how do you move ? ( it isn't always crunches and sit ups hey !?) Tips : Assume an athletic position, feet shoulder width apart, chest out, shoulders back. CONTROL the movement, you shouldn’t be having a seizure while doing these. Fully extend your arms & pause for a 1-2 second count, and then return back to the starting position (which is generally the sternum).
The more narrow the stance, the harder the exercise is. If you’re having a hard time keeping your hips from moving, you’re probably too far away from the achor point. I find that people often tend to struggle with finding a good balance between not enough and too much resistance. Always have the resistance band achored at waist height, never lock out you knees and perform the movement with control reducing any twist in the torso or hips. Although you will feel some assistance from your glutes and arm the majority of resistance should be felt in the core... more so on the side closest to the anchor point. .
