What can you can do at home to improve your AcroYoga practice? This month’s highlighted exercise is forearm planks so get that core ready!

Position:  Elbows under shoulders, fingers widely spread, forearms and elbows shoulder width apart

Purpose:  Strengthen your core and shoulders

Duration:  Start with 15 seconds and progress to 1 minute holds.

Repetition:  If you are holding for 15 seconds – repeat 5x.  If you are holding for a minute – 1-2x will suffice.

Cues:  Press up through upper/mid-back to engage the serratus anterior to support the shoulder blades. Think of externally rotating the humerus (upper arm bone).  Keep your core engaged and maintain a neutral spine.
