Pallof Press! It’s so simple, anyone can do it! The Pallof Press conditions the core to fight rotational and lateral flexion forces at the trunk. Although our spine is designed to do some rotation and side flexion, the back will become injured and damaged if the muscles of the trunk cannot properly stabilize our vertebrae and discs when doing these activities. While doing the Pallof Press, your trunk remains engaged and rigid while a cable or resistance band tries to pull your body laterally and tires to rotate it to one side. In fighting that pull, your muscles not only become stronger, but also learn to protect the spine. This exercise is essential for anyone who plays golf, baseball, any kind of combat sports, or those who want to get out of back pain and stay out of back pain.
