7. Palloff Press
This exercise zeroes in on your core’s stabilizers, which are critical not only to generating power, but to keeping your spine stable while doing so, Trink says.
Instructions: Attach a D-handle to a cable station, hold it at your sternum, and stand far enough away from the machine that you feel tension in the cable. One shoulder should face the machine. Then, press the weight straight out in front of you, making sure your body doesn’t wobble or turn to one side. Hold the position for two seconds, then slowly return your hands back to start.
