It’s NOT for Everyone! Here’s How An Experienced Pilates Student Suffered Month’s of Pain From ‘Planking!’

It’s become a craze. Many fitness classes include it and even hold contests for the longest-held plank! It’s fun and effective but for some very dangerous!

Many Pilates classes now include it. Planking can be a great way to add more challenge to any workout. But Joe Pilates cautioned students that some exercises are dangerous if your body isn’t ready. Early in my teaching career I injured a student by teaching her a Pilates move that her body was simply not yet strong enough to do.
