The Pallof Press is named after the Boston based physical therapist, John Pallof who came up with this very user friendly core exercise.
This exercise is an anti-rotation hold exercise that will help build core stability. “Preventing rotation” means that your body is able to resist forces acting upon it that may try to rotate or move it in a way and direction that it can't move safely.
This is a great exercise for golfers or others who have to effectively manage rotational forces.
