Burnaby Physiotherapy Shares the Best Core Exercise

Exercise used for lower back pain doubles as effective core exercise

BURNABY, BC--(Marketwired - August 26, 2016) - Absolute PhysioCare & Sports Rehab, a Burnaby-based physiotherapy clinic, has a secret for exercise and health enthusiasts. The Pallof Press is an incredibly effective exercise that actually helps strengthen and condition the core.

The core is much more than your rectus abdominus (6 pack muscles) and obliques. It is made to resist trunk extension, posterior pelvic tilt and transmit rotary forces (rotation and anti-rotation). It is the connection between your upper and lower extremities when transferring forces -- think of swinging a baseball bat.

"The Pallof Press, named for physiotherapist John Pallof, delivers the best bang for your buck as a core exercise," says clinic representative Robbi Basran. "One of my favourite aspects of this exercise is its versatility. It can be done by anyone, in many different positions/stances and anywhere. You only need a resistance band."

The blog contains photographs and instructions of how to do the Pallof Press:

  1. Assume an athletic position: feet shoulder width apart, chest out, shoulders back.

  2. Control the movement -- you shouldn't be on the verge of passing out. Fully extend your arms and pause for 1-2 seconds, resisting any twisting or rotation.

  3. Return back to the starting position, generally the sternum.
