If you want to continue to get results, you need to make every exercise a little more difficult (mean) to continue to develop and get better. There are many ways to do this, including doing something for a longer time and so-on.
A lot of exercises are done so poorly that they don't need a progression yet, but some technique work to make the movement better and to make it more efficient.
One of those exercises is our topic today, the Plank.

Athletic development can often be a puzzle that needs to be solved by the individual athlete. One such case is one of our middle school going into high school clients Doug. Doug is a pretty darn good athlete, he is fast, stable and holds the Escape pull-up record. There was something he was missing in his performance as seen in the first video in this post of him kicking (below), he was unstable and wasn't projecting his full power while kicking.

Doug's instability was a big issue for his performance and health.

At this point, many programs may try just to keep doing power work with the thought that was what he needed. The result would probably be minimal to no progress and in our opinion, could lead to him just hurting himself due to possibly kicking harder without proper "brakes" or body control.


In this case of Doug, he needed some mobility work followed by a specific stability drill which resulted in his ability to use and maintain proper mechanics when kicking. As well as more of ability to express his strength and power in his kick due to his increased stability. (Check out video number 2 below to see this in action.)

So that, in short, is a simple way to play better, assess the movement and then correct and reassess it to see how well the correction worked and kept doing it until it becomes permanent. (6 to 8 weeks) Then do it often enough to maintain the ability during your season.

That, in essence, is the cornerstone of our program here at Escape, and we are so happy how it helps people not only play better than ever but how it also helps them move better!

Marc Petragnani

Our 5 A.M. group is truly awesome and, once again, one of them has earned recognition as our "Member of the Month." This month it is Mark Petragani. Mark is one of the original 5 AMers' and hasn't missed many sessions in over two years. As a father of two young children and a full time high school math teacher, as well as a baseball coach he is one busy man. So that isn't just an accomplishment- it is a huge one!
As we stated earlier, he has not let his circumstances stop him from giving it his all in the gym at Escape. He has lost fat and continues to reclaim his health and wellness. Mark trains 3 times a week, along with Sydney (last month's member of the month) and all of our other friends at this early morning hour.
Mark, we are very proud of you, encouraged by your efforts, and we look forward to continuing to help you live your life to the fullest.

Sean and Michael came to Escape with some big needs and very specific goals. Both of them were recovering from injuries and needed a program that would take them from where they were to being able to throw faster and harder than last season.
They are both pitchers from local high schools. Sean is a senior at Shawnee and Mike is a senior, and left handed pitcher, at Lenape. Since they started here, both have improved in their speed as well as pitching mechanics and conditioning, and have gotten stronger overall as well.
Both of them train 5 times a week, working on such things as better movement quality and strength one day: conditioning and explosive power and speed on others.
They show up each and every session, giving it their all on a consistent basis. With these two's talent and work ethic, the only one that can beat them is themselves, and hamper them from achieveing their full and true potenional.
Watch out for these two in their upcoming seasons and what they will do to batters.

In spite of all our advances in trainining for sports performance, there are still many outdated ideas causing problems for young and old athletes alike. One of these misconceptions is the thought that just lifting weights to develop strength is enough to make an athlete better.

Core training is a much talked about subject, yet is often approached in a way that doesn't give the full benefit to the athlete or typical gym goer. As you may be aware, the core is the center of a person. Also the fact that you may not be aware of, the core is also every part of us except for our head, arms, and upper leg regions. So you might now see that training for strength in this area is much more involved than merely doing 20 crunches.
