What do you think of the pallof press?

Charlotte Orr said...

Hi Lia, glad you asked me that - I just realized I linked to the wrong version of the Pallof press. All fixed now.

I find it kind of weird. I couldn't get my head around what to do with the cable at first, but I can feel it working my abs when I'm doing the isometric contraction, so I guess it's doing what it's supposed to.

Are you doing it too?

Lia Halsall said...

We do them too, and yep they work the core that's for sure Charlotte. LOL!!
