Emerge’s First Kids Camp a Success!

Emerge hosted the first annual Kids Camp Saturday morning raising money for the Boys and Girls Club of St. Charles.

The kids went through 7 different stations with two Emerge coaches at each station. We finished with a team tug of war, kids vs coaches for the finale.

Thanks to intern Corey Parr and Kimberly for putting on a successful event and all the Emerge staff that donated their time.

Rope Pull Planks

Jimmy Sansone performs a plank while dragging a kettlebell down the turf.

First, he sets up in a neutral, braced plank position.
Next, he pulls the kettlebell down the turf with alternate rowing pulls.

The number one goal is to stay neutral and stable throughout the exercise, engaging a constant light brace.

P.S. Creative planking exercises are great IF you can maintain a perfectly neutral position. If not, ditch the “bells and whistles” and opt for a more traditional plank hold.

It’s Your Turn. Emerge.
