Plank pose

PLANK POSE  Strengthens abdomen (your core) A You’ll need a stairway or a kitchen counter to achieve this pose, which starts in push-up position, with your hands on about the fifth step (using a lower step will intensify the exercise). B Continue to elevate your body at an angle, scooping in your abdominal muscles and tilting your pelvis toward the stairs to elongate your spine. Think about zipping up your abdominals underneath your ribcage. C Hold for 30 to 90 seconds. D To challenge yourself, lift one leg off the ground and hold the plank pose for another set. E For a further challenge, lift one leg up and to the side, and hold. HOLD: 30–90 seconds SETS: 3–5
