Intensify Your Plank!

Intensify Your Plank!

The plank.

The exercise has such a simple name, but the exercise is anything but simple. It involves multiple muscle groups all working together to hold the body still in a horizontal position against gravity.

Challenge yourself in the new year by taking this "simple" exercise to the next level.

1) Begin with a plank position. Hold for 30 seconds. To add an extra challenge, do 10 push-ups.

2) Lift your left hand off the floor and transition to a side plank. Do not collapse into your right shoulder. Hold for 30 seconds. To add an extra challenge, lower and lift your hips (about 6 inches) 10 times.

3) Change sides. Put your left hand on the floor and lift your right hand off to move into a side plank on the other side. Hold for 30 seconds. To add an extra challenge, lower and lift your hips (about 6 inches) 10 times.

4) Reverse plank. Take a seat on the floor with your hands behind you slightly wider than your shoulders. Lift your hips up away from the floor into a reverse plank position. Hold for 30 seconds. To add an extra challenge, add 5 leg kicks on each side.

There you have it! In less than 3 minutes, you can take the plank - and your workout - to a whole new exciting level this year! Have fun!
