Extended Plank for Women
- Get into a pushup position. Place your weight on your hands (as you would for a pushup). Your body should form a straight line from your shoulders to your ankles.
- Brace your core by contracting your abs as if you were about to be punched in the gut. Hold this position for 30 seconds—or as directed—while breathing deeply. Move your hands forward for a greater challenge.
