We use the sports specific endurance plank test to validate global core muscle endurance, a strong
core will minimize the chance of doing other movements to compensate for a weak core.

Once the test has been carried out measuring your plank endurance, HD1 Fitness Clinic are then
able to advise on the relevant programme to required to improve your core strength.
