I have two books available for sale online and in many bookstores. My first book, Ultimate Plank Fitness, is all about core training using plank variations and my second book, The Complete Guide to Yoga Inversions, is a guide for advancing your yoga practice through inversions, arm balances and advanced postures. Both were published in 2015. Check them out!
I wrote The Complete Guide to Yoga Inversions to provide students of all levels with a guide for advancing their practice and for teachers to get ideas for different variations of common poses as well as to help with creative class sequencing.
This book is designed to show you how to progress your practice from the simplest of postures to more advanced arm balances and inversions. The Complete Guide to Yoga Inversions is the ultimate collection of arm balances, inversions and advanced asanas that can be found in many styles of yoga including Ashtanga, Bikram, power, hatha and more.
Each pose features detailed step-by-step instructions and helpful photos, as well as modifications and progressions for all levels!
It’s my hope that this book helps you fearlessly take your practice to new places!
A safe, challenging, and effective method of core conditioning, planking is one of the best ways to get fit and toned. Variations of planks are used across many fitness domains including traditional group exercise, personal training, home workouts, yoga, pilates, barre, CrossFit and more. Not only are planks perfect for crafting six-pack abs, they also target shoulders, pectorals, biceps, triceps, glutes, quads, and hamstrings. They increase the heart rate, offer calorie-busting cardio exercise, and create healthy muscle tone.
Ultimate Plank Fitness features 100 different variations of planks that can be used to customize your workout. Easily increase the difficulty of your core strengthening exercises by adding stability balls, gliders, and weights. Each exercise includes a step-by-step photo demonstration, points of performance, where to engage, along with common faults to detect ways to improve your fitness. Finally, I provide you with ten 5-minute workouts incorporating several planks that you can use to target trouble areas and build strength.
With countless variations of the exercise, ranging from traditional planks to side plank variations and planks using external weights or unstable surfaces, your entire workout can be programmed around the plank! Work your way to a healthy core with Ultimate Plank Fitness.
