Master the Hollow Body Hold to Move Like a Gymnast: A Beginner’s Guide
The following are some of the benefits of mastering the hollow body hold:
1) You will be able to move like a gymnast.
Your upper body will look more athletic and your lower back looks less rounded than if you were using a regular plank position.
2) You will be able to perform other movements with greater efficiency.
For example, you can do a full push up without having to bend over too much or worry about losing balance due to leaning forward.
3) You will have better posture because your spine won’t round as much when you’re lying down.
This means that you’ll feel more comfortable while sitting at a desk job or standing during meetings.
4) You will be able to lift heavier weights.
While it may seem difficult at first, you’ll eventually get used to lifting heavy objects. And then you’ll start lifting even more weight! (And then you’ll want to do more!)
5) You will be able to work out any injury that might occur from doing a regular plank position.
If your knees hurt when performing a regular plank, try moving into the hollow body hold and see how it feels instead!
6) You’ll be able to treat lower back pain.
A lot of people suffer from lower back pain every day. But you won’t have to be one of them. By strengthening your core in the hollow body position, you will be able to get rid of that lower back pain!
