The pallof press is a simple set up can be done on a cable machine or at home with some resistance bands.
Pallof Press Set Up:
- Grab the cable or band creating tension
- Stand side onto the band/cable
- Holding the cable/band at chest height push the band out locking the elbows out whilst keeping the shoulder down.
- Using breath take a big inhale through the nose, holding the breath as you press out and breath out as you bring the cable back in
Rep Ranges: 8-10 reps for 3-5 sets
The pallof press should be bread and butter for creating stronger obliques and what’s also known as core stiffness, which protects the spine.
