I wrote Strengthen Your Core for anyone who wants a safe and effective core exercise program. The program uses Plank and Side Plank poses to improve posture, enhance performance, and strengthen from head to toe.
The book discusses the theory behind core strength so that you will have a solid understanding of how to build and develop core strength. Detailed descriptions with photos are provided for each of the poses. Four levels are provided to meet your needs: Beginner, Active, Athletic and Elite.
I have created a comprehensive resource page for readers with extensive videos describing the key content.

All of my clients benefit from doing Planks and Side Planks at a level that challenges them. Having taught so many variations of Planks and Side Planks over the years, I realized that knowledge and awareness of the different Plank and Side Plank progressions were not out there—but needed to be. That was my motivation for writing this book.
Strengthen Your Core is one of my products.
