Abstract

SUMMARY: THE SIDE PLANK/BRIDGE IS AN EXERCISE COMMONLY USED IN CORE STABILIZATION TRAINING PROGRAMS. HOWEVER, STRESS PLACED ON THE GLENOHUMERAL JOINT MAY CAUSE PAIN AND LIMITS THE BENEFITS OF THIS EXERCISE FOR SOME INDIVIDUALS. THE REVERSE SIDE PLANK/BRIDGE MAY MINIMIZE THESE ISSUES AND ENHANCE CORE DEVELOPMENT.
