Reverse Plank

An exercise that is very often forgot about is a reverse plank. We all know that planks are a great core workout but typically people stick to elbow planks or side planks, during your next workout try a reverse plank! Reverse planks do not need any equipment or that much space so there are no excuses. The reverse plank is great for your postural muscles and even your glutes and hamstrings so a great full body workout.

To perform a reverse plank sit on the floor with your legs extended out in front of you. Place your palms on the floor directly below your shoulder with your fingers pointed toward your butt and spread wide. Begin by lifting your hips off the ground until you are supporting your weight between your heels and hands. Lift your body until you are a straight line from the top of your head to your toes, tighten you abs and lift upward while squeezing your butt. Hold this exercise from any where from 15 seconds to 1 minute or more.
