Pallof press

The Pallof press is an isometric exercise that trains core stability. It involves resisting rotation from a cable or band, developing what is sometimes called "anti-rotation" core strength. It is most often seen in programs for athletes who compete in sports that test strength, power, and functional movements. It can be trained in timed holds or for reps by pressing the cable or band away from the body.


  1. Builds abdominal strength and muscle control
  2. Works the upper and lower body isometrically to maintain position
  3. Can also be performed with bands if cables are unavailable
