We’ve got another variation on the plank for you to try — it’ll help if you check out plank basics and our first variation, arm cycles, before trying out the body saw. It’s a movement that rewards body control and full-body strength, and it’s a great exercise to introduce to ensure you’re running with a stable core. Once you’ve nailed down your plank form, give it a try!
Philip Levi is a certified human movement specialist. His knowledge and experience both as an athlete and as a health coach have equipped him to do what I loves: helping others achieve active, fulfilling lives—lives in which they are the heroes of their own stories. His track record includes more than a decade of elite fitness training, for those ranging from his own clients to other instructors and coaches, all on the professional level. In addition to his expertise in biomechanics, he is a certified nutritionist with an intimate understanding and belief in an all-fronts approach to wellness, including mental health, injury prevention and rehabilitation. Over 12 years, he has accumulated experience working with athletes of every level of performance prowess, from weekend warriors to elite competitors. He takes it upon himself to not only know and live his profession (also an elite-level OCR competitor), but to know his clients. That means a personal, client-unique touch: location-specific programming for an athlete’s environment, goal-specific programming for efficient, effective training, and nutritional guidance. Targeting a range of fitness outcomes (from as broad as “getting in shape” to as specific as “increasing sprint speed and vertical jump”), He removes the monotony from programming whether you’re training once a week, or on all seven days. Whatever your goals are, he will help you reach them.
