I am often asked about preparatory poses for #inversions, and my mind always immediately goes to #forearmplank pose. Once I started focusing on my #core work, kicking into inversions became a much more attainable goal. I like to hold this pose from 30-60 seconds, depending on how much I feel like torturing myself. Actually, as time has progressed and i’ve gotten more comfortable with it, there are definitely days when I look forward to forearm (and regular) plank. It’s a great place to turn off your mind and just exist in the pose.
(I’m sure some people might not expect someone with such an expressive belly to engage in daily core work, but looks can and should be deceiving. #fatkidforever #gimmedatcake)
