Plank

 

Perk: Few moves beat the plank and its variants for building a strong core.

Work:
1. Start by getting into a press-up position.
2. Bend your elbows and rest your weight onto your forearms and not on your hands.
3. Your body should form a straight line from shoulders to ankles.
4. Engage your core by sucking your belly button into your spine.
5. Hold this position for the prescribed time.
