Floor Bridges with Alarcon

Touchstone trainer, Justin Alarcon knows the value of a strong core. Solid abdominal muscles  keep your body tight to the wall on overhanging terrain, they allow you to reach farther for jams on vertical crack routes, and they help you step your foot up higher on low angle rock. There are numerous exercises to help strengthen your core and it's easy to get confused by all of the options.. Alarcon offers some great insight into a perfect core exercise. "Floor bridges are a great introductory exercise for developing the body tension needed to climb on steep overhangs and tenuous vertical faces," says Alarcon. In this video, Alarcon deomnstrates the proper way to perform a floor bridge
