About the Own YOUR Plank Workout

Using a band to assist your plank so you can learn and perform more advanced plank exercises will not only develop high performance Abs, but it will make Ab training a lot more fun. The Own Your Plank Workout does exactly that.

It implements an “assisted band approach” that, in turn, allows you to perform more advanced plank exercises that without the assistance, you would not be able to complete without compensation.

Develop a perfect plank and, in turn, teach your Abs how to become high performance dynamic stabilizers.

    Love your videos! Need clarification for the “Plank Workout” for the terms: “Cover your ribs” and “Pack your shoulders” I don’t want to presume I know what that means. Thanks for the great workouts!!! Getting me in awesome shape!

  2. Dave Schmitz says:

    Cover your ribs refers to making sure your not extended thru your low back and packing the shoulders refers to the shoulder joint being placed into a tight stable position.
