Plank Exercise

This one's great for your entire core and your obliques. It works the back core muscles as well.

REPS: 16-20 per side
SETS: 2-3
FREQUENCY: 3-5 times per week


  • Get into plank position, balanced on toes and forearms, with hands pointing forward and slightly inward.
  • Elbows should be under shoulders.
  • Move side to side on your toes from hip to hip.
  • Keep core muscles flexed and back flat, not sinking.
  • Keep legs straight, not bent.

ADVANCED MUSCLE CHALLENGE: Do this with your niece or nephew sitting on your back--no, just kidding!
