How to Get Your Pole Plank
I love the plank hold as a pole move which can lead to so many other moves on the pole (like a cross ankle release)!
In this video, I’m going to share three of my favourite tips to help you get your plank on the pole.
These tips for your pole plank are:
1. TWIST YOUR HIPS
As you get into your plank position, you need to make sure you twist your hips towards the pole, rather than keeping your hips level.
This twist will help you squeeze the pole between your thighs properly, and give you a better grip on the pole.
Without this twist, keeping your hips square to the ceiling, you’ll have too much of a gap between your thighs to get a proper grip and will end up sliding down the pole!
2. PUSH YOUR HIPS UPWARDS
Pushing your butt upwards will help you achieve a stronger plank position. Squeeze your glutes to create the upwards drive of your hips as you get into position!
3. PUSH YOUR FEET DOWN
This last tip ties-in with tip number two…
While your hips are pushing upwards, your legs and feet need to be driving downwards towards the ground.
The combination of hips up and legs down will create the balance to help you achieve a flat plank hold on the pole.
