5 Killer Pallof Press Variations

When coaches talk about great core movements, they often mention Plank, Deadbug and Carry variations, but forget to give a shout out to the greatness of Pallof Press variations.

Introduced by physical therapist John Pallof, the Pallof Press is an excellent way to train anti-rotation. It can also be a very effective exercise for anti-lateral flexion, shoulder stability and single-leg lateral movements.

This is all very important. When it comes to the core, coaches tend to think strictly in terms of the sagittal plane with anti-flexion/extension exercises, neglecting the rotational and lateral components. Enhancing the ability to resist rotational forces is a requirement for success in many sports, especially when athletes are on their feet.
