PART 4 – TRUE CORE STRENGTH.
BUILD A STEEL-LIKE CORE WITH THE POKER!
This is a superb exercise for conditioning the gut, and adding strength to the whole body.
It will get you the results you desire.
Similar to the Plank exercise in looks, but thats where it ends. This position when performed correctly will really blast the fat from your body, build sensational inner strength, and your energy will go through the roof!
Before we begin, a quick recap of the previous exercises –
1) Deep Breathing/ The Stomach Pump
3) Power Reverse Crunch
To begin, assume the press-up position, except instead of the palms of your hands resting on the floor, you want to close your fists, and bring your elbows and forearms to the floor.
Raise your head and look forward as you aim to hold this position for one minute. This describes the typical Plank posture.
Now comes the key to the infinitely superior Poker. As you breathe in suck your stomach toward your spine, and lock it there. Breathe in deeply and out fully and forcefully through the nostrils, while at the same time contracting your abdominal muscles like crazy. Remember to hold the lock on your abdominals hard.
By performing this exercise regularly, you will develop a core like steel, and muscles like a racehorse.
Aim to hold for 1 minute initially, and build to 2 minutes with practice.
A rock solid core is within your reach, and with this knowledge of this little known exercise is more achievable than ever before.
