FOREARM PLANK

FOREARM PLANK pose, also called Dolphin Plank, is a powerful core stabilizer that works the shoulders, legs and core – in short, a real full body posture!

There are a couple of nice ways to get into this pose.

I teach it to beginners by starting in SPHINX. Forearm Plank is also a great alternative to PLANK, and for anyone who has wrist injuries.

ALIGNMENT

  • Curl the toes
  • Press into the forearms and lift the hips up
