This exercise is called the “Belly Press IsoHold” or “Pallof Press IsoHold”, depending on whether or not John Pallof (the PT from Eastern Mass that developed this exercise) is in the room! This is a great exercise for “Phase 1” of our Rotational Core Power Training progression for hockey players, baseball players, and golfers.
