Strength, Agility & Mental Skills / Low Plank
by Jimmy Myers
Jimmy was a wrestler and 3-time “All American Athlete” at the University of Central Florida before becoming a Partner and Head Trainer at Tampa Bay Athletics in 2012.
Coach Myers explains the low plank to us in this segment, a great excersise for gaining core strength. The core is just not limited to the abdominal muscles, and it is an essential muscle group to baseball players. Once you have mastered the proper form, set goals for yourself on how long you can properly hold the low plank. Start with 3 sets of 20 second holds with a 1 minute break in between, as you get better increase the hold count by 5 seconds each week.
