21 Jul Wrist or Back Pain When You Plank?
DO YOU LOVE OR HATE PLANKS? If you only have time for ONE move this is what to do! But… You might be doing them wrong… especially if your lower back or wrist hurt.
PLANKS… love em or hate them they are the best exercise for your core and for reducing many forms of lower back pain. It also helps strengthen your upper body!
Many don’t want to do them because of “wrist pain” or “lower back pain”…: you MAY be doing it wrong.
