Hello there, my name is Jay Jones, celebrity peak performance coach and fitness minister, and today I'm going to demonstrate some exercises to strengthen the lower back for planche. Now the planche exercise is a French word that literally means plank. It's when the body is held almost parallel to the ground. So it's a fantastic upper body exercise. It needs a lot of upper body power and strength. It also requires tremendous core and lower back exercise and power as well. So the first thing we're going to do today to manufacture that power is to do dead lifts. We're just going to lift two 25 pound dumbbells. These are very technical lifts so you want to make sure your heels are planted deep in to the ground. Stick your butt out, flatten your back, grab the weight, pull your neck up. Push through the hips and heels and flatten the back. Push the hips back down and back up. And you're going to breathe inhale as we go down, exhale as we come up. Keeping the back flat the entire time. My name is Jay Jones, celebrity peak performance coach and fitness minister and that is a fantastic exercise that you can do to help build lower back strength for a planche.
