Planks are Boring! This Variation is Better!
The Prone Kettlebell Drag
This exercise is anything but a drag.
According to my wife it is “a cognitive challenge that engaged the entire body if done correctly.”
I can’t really explain why, but there is a metabolic effect when doing this exercise that you just don’t get from normal planks.
You are having to cross the midline. You are working on balance being on one arm with a minimal base of support while dragging a weight. The only way to maintain integrity in your core is to engage the whole body and therefor you get the most bang for your buck.
Please share with someone who needs this challenge. Let me know your thoughts after you have tried it.
