If yesterday’s plank rows didn’t cut it for you, here’s a brutal challenge!!! I’m not exaggerating when I say this, the plank row chest press is not only the most challenging chest press I’ve ever performed it’s also one of the difficult exercises I’ve ever attempted period. It’s for this reason I nicknamed it the “Impossible Chest Press” as the level of brutality is through the roof. Furthermore this represents the epitome of full body activation. When combined with a bottoms up protocol these also target just about every biomotor capability in existence including full body stability, motor control, postural alignment, mobility, symmetry, rotary stability, lumbopelvic hip control, foot and ankle activation, shoulder stabilization, core activation, and t-spine mobility.
In terms of the execution I’ve found that angling the body slightly from the bench places less tension on the shoulder joint of the planking arm as it allows a more depressed scapula and tucked elbow position. I recommend starting with the double leg variation first.
You’ll also notice how I utilize an eccentric isometric protocol here. There are 2 reasons for this. First, you’re essentially forced to do so as it’s almost impossible to successfully complete these in a controlled fashion without using the eccentric isometric protocol. In fact, one of the goals for many of the exercises I devise is to force individuals to rely on the eccentric isometric protocol. This exercise is no exception.
With that said, even if it weren’t necessary, the other reason why I implement eccentric isometrics is for the enhanced proprioceptive feedback and kinesthetic awareness associated with slow and controlled eccentric muscle actions. In other words, eccentric isometrics help the lifter fine tune their body positioning and movement mechanics by more easily attending to proprioceptive feedback and sensory signals coming from their muscle spindles and central nervous system. Ultimately, this is how one masters their movement - a topic I discuss in great depth in my NEW book Movement Redefined.

Good to know!💪💪
I couldn’t even do body weight 😬 I was at the end of a punishing chest workout tho too. Maybe I should try it out fresh
What about adding a little „Bridge the gap“ here too?!
I very like this
Such control! Looks gnarly
This page is elite🔥 continue being great!
Absolutely wonderful. I’m going to have to build up a ton of progressions for my clients with this but have this be the pinnacle goal movement will be inspiring for them I think
Should to knee be more align with the right shoulder?
Haha way harder than it looks
Damn dude, you got me on this one. Toughest one to date for me!
I tried this one out and I loved it. 20 lbs is enough on this one. Lol. Thanks for the video. Definitely my favorite insta page
