Strengthen Your Core With This Dynamic Plank Variation - Hover Plank Teeters
Hover Plank Teeters on StrongBoard Balance® will work your abs, obliques, shoulders, lower back, and chest to strengthen your core fast. This is an intermediate exercise and should be performed on a stable surface prior to performing it with the StrongBoard Balance board. This exercise is primarily for the abs, obliques, and shoulders but will also work the chest and the lower back. This is such a great exercise and a whole new twist on your standard plank pose. This will work your entire kinetic chain and even force your legs to participate in this total body burn.

1. Start with knees and feet on the floor, position hands palms down on the SBB platform, shoulder width apart.
2. Bring your knees up just high enough to hover above the floor. Be sure your abs are braced, your hands are directly below your shoulders, and your head is in proper alignment with your spine.
3. Holding hover plank position, push the platform to one side and then the other.
4. Continue to rock the platform back and forth for the desired amount of repetitions or duration.
Keep your abs braced at all times. Keep your hips from moving side to side. This will force the core to work harder. For more of a challenge, speed up or slow down your tempo in the teeter phase of the exercise.
StrongBoard Balance® utilizes MULTI SPRING TECHNOLOGY™ that works with your body to deliver the perfect amount of stimulation to keep your core musculature and stabilizing muscles engaged and contracted, while training your central nervous system, improving posture, proprioception and reaction time.
