‘Bear’ Position Core Work?

Today is Day 8️⃣ of #30daysofcore where I’ll share some tips and thoughts on core work for the next 30 days.

The Bear Position is an anti-extension position but immediately becomes more of an Anti-Rotation exercise whenever an arm or a leg moves from the stable position.

Like the Front Plank progression, many people would think that this progression is too easy or that they are too advanced, but you will be shocked with the amount of people that will struggle with a simple Shoulder Tap from this position.

The Bear Position progression looks something like this;

1️⃣ Plank
2️⃣ 3-Point Hold
3️⃣ Shoulder Taps
4️⃣ Dumbbell Plank Row Hold
5️⃣ Dumbbell Plank Row
6️⃣ Kettlebell Drag
7️⃣ Body Saw

Again, don’t overlook this progression or jump right the the Kettlebell Drag or Body Saw because you think you or your clients can handle it. Build the foundation and earn the more advanced progressions.
