Exercise of The Week: Plank on an Exercise Ball
Sometimes it is important to get back to the basics when working out. The plank is a wonderful exercise and it works wonders for your core and this variation is no exception. If you have never done a plank before I recommend starting with the basic plank (click here) instead of this advanced version of it. Form is always key so get your basic form down before moving to this one. Caution it looks a lot easier than it really is….you have been warned! So how do you do it?
Place your exercise ball near your feet. Now get into push up position. Bend your elbows and place your weight on your forearms. Carefully place your shins and feet on the exercise ball. You should look similar to the picture above. Make sure to keep your body as straight as you can. You do not want to dip or arch your body. Hold this for 30 seconds. Repeat for 2 sets of 30. You can always increase the duration of this move as you perfect it. That is it!Other Exercises: Dumbbell Swing Split Jump Reverse fly Jackknife sit-up Bent Over Row 30 Day Fitness Challenges: Curtsy Just Abs Jackknife sit ups Russian Twist Squats Dumbbell squat thrust
