Building A Strong Core

Keep it Core with Planks

People can think of planks as a dirty word since they have a bad reputation for being overly difficult. But this simple exercise not only is a key way to strengthen your core, but it also has great benefits for your shoulders and legs as well. Plus, they’re so simple they can be done anywhere.

  • The exercise itself is arguably the simplest one possible.
  • First, get down onto the ground on your belly to start the plank position.
  • Place your forearms on the ground, palms down, with your elbows directly underneath your shoulders.
  • Stretch your legs behind you while keeping your feet hip-width apart.
  • Keep your back flat and your head and neck in a neutral position (don’t look up or ahead!).
  • For the stretch, push your elbows into the floor while squeezing your quads, glutes, and core muscles.
  • Breathe as you stretch! Inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth.

3 Important Tips to Avoid Injury

Don’t hold it for too long. Even the hardest bodies, At the MOST, shouldn’t hold the position for more than 60 seconds. Long planks just lock up and stiffen your muscles.
Do try holding your plank for 20 seconds. If you feel like you’re really straining, try starting out at just 10 to 15 seconds and then gradually build up. Shoot for at least 5 reps of stretches.

Don’t arch your back up, that puts pressure on your spine.
Do make sure your shoulders are spread wide and keep your palms wide on the floor. This will give you more stability to hold your back straight.

Don’t let your hips sink. When your abs and arms muscles fatigue, losing your position will strain your lower back.
Do keep your hips raised by squeezing your abs and glutes. For extra support, you can also spread your feet out a bit further than hip-width for more stability.

Most Supplements Lack Absorption

The truth is, we can’t just take Glutathione over the counter and effectively absorb it. Most supplements lack what is known as “bioavailability”, which is the ability to be absorbed by the body on a cellular level. The active ingredients in most supplements are expelled from the body without any benefit to you, which is a waste of time and money.

RiboCeine is Patented & Proven to Enhance Glutathione

Max’s proprietary RiboCeine technology was designed specifically to help our body’s produce Glutathione naturally within our cells and avoid the challenge of low bioavailability.

When effectively absorbed, RiboCeine helps to combat toxins, free radicals and oxidative stress. Oxidative stress damages cells, compromising our overall health.*

With the health obstacles we all face, now more than ever is the time we should be looking to maximize our health.

RiboCeine is easily absorbed and enables the cells to create glutathione naturally to help strengthen a healthy immune system.

It is a unique molecule that combines ribose and cysteine, nutrients that occur naturally in our bodies. The cells then use the ribose and cysteine to naturally produce Glutathione as well as ATP – our cells’ natural fuel and source of energy.
