In recent months I have seen the Plank exercise grow in popularity, and is often recommended on television shows such as Dr. Oz. I agree the Plank is a wonderful exercise; when done correctly it
utilizes the whole body. So often I see the Plank shown as “okay, get in the position and hold it for 5 seconds”. I think that is where the drudgery comes from. If you do not use the proper
technique, the arms end up trying to do all of the work which can put undue pressure on the wrist, elbow and shoulder joints. There can also be pressure and aggravation on the lower back.
June is an inspiration!
She's extremely knowledgeable and is constantly looking for new and creative ways to work with me and my physical limitations. She explains things clearly, is patient and caring, and is a joy to
work with. I've been able to use what I've learned in Pilates in my everyday life and in other forms of exercise as well. Pilates works, and June is a great teacher.
