Plank to Mountain Climbers

  • Hold Plank position with towels under feet on slideboard until fatigued
  • Immediately assume Push-Up position and perform Mountain Climbers by bringing each knee to elbow in alternating fashion for specified duration

Sets/Duration: 1x30 seconds each exercise or until fatigued
Coaching Point: Minimize low back movement
Meyer: We are teaching Dwight how to get flexion and extension through his hips without arching or rounding his back. This translates into Dwight being able to prevent movement through his core when performing lower body movements on the court
