  1. Jeremy ,Should this exercise be done as fast as possible to create Speed and explosive Power ,in THE anaerobic form of training ,10 seconds sessions ,or slowly ?

    • Raymond I would choose both types of training for this exercise. Slowly will help the segmental stabilization aspect of power and the speed training will help the explosive needs. I would recommend you do the speed training only 1-2x/week max.

    Hi Jeremy. Years ago I dislocated my left shoulder in a skiing accident and experienced some pain after holding the plank position for a minute. Should I avoid planks altogether, or just shorten the time or number of repetitions? There was no pain for the 1st month doing them once a day for a few minutes. Then the pain stated and I stopped doing them.

    Thanks, Ron

    • Hi Ron,
      I would stop and return as tolerated. My suggestion would be less time and more reps but only if there is no pain. It sounded like you had success in the past so give it another shot with some modifications. Let me know how that goes please.

    Hi Jeremy,

    Boy, that looks like a great exercise to, among other things, help with “separation.”

    Jeremy ,In the lower body strength exercises section ,do you have drills with ankle straps ,for extensions ,curls ,abductions ,adductions ?
    I don’ t have ankle straps Yet .
    Which ones do you recommend and where CAN they be found ?

    • Hi Raymond,
      I don’t use them very often but they can be found at most of the sporting goods websites, i.e. You can add them to most of the leg exercises because the extra weight will either add resistance as you lift or work on your stability by having you control the momentum they may create when doing things like kicking or swinging you legs.

    What is recommended routine (say a week) with number of reps and hold times for each exercise/movement? Thx!

    • Hi Norman,
      Fatigue is the best indicator for sets and reps but if you want a baseline I would start with 10 kicks each leg, 3 sets each side. 1x/week if you’re doing a bunch of different core exercises throughout the week or 3x/week if this one is your main source of core work.
