1. Hold a Plank for Two Minutes
Having a strong core is not only aesthetically pleasing, it’s also essential for lifting heavy weights, performing better and staying injury-free. Perform the standard plank once a week for maximum time. But performing more demanding versions, like ball saws and stir-the-pot planks on a stability ball for shorter periods will develop strength faster and allow you to perform better during the regressed exercise.
- Set up in a push-up position, but instead of having your weight on your hands, place it on your elbows.
- You should be in a perfectly straight line.
- Don’t allow the back to sag.
- Flexing your glutes and quads will create more stability while performing this exercise.
