Video: Work the Plankadmin
Long hours taking the wind out of your sails and your workout?
Steal a few minutes for fitness and get your midship in shape with our Work the Plank moves.
Stand a few feet away from your desk. Lean against the desktop resting on a bent elbow on the desktop and extend your body out in a straight line (see video). Rest the opposite arm on your thigh. Keep body completely aligned from feet to head. Engage your abs. Hold this plank position for at least 30 seconds and then switch sides.
Once you are comfortable with 30 seconds try to increase your time with each plank you perform.
Variation: While holding the plank position dip your hip down toward the floor and bring back up to starting position. Complete a set of 12 and then switch sides.
Variation II: Raise top leg and resting arm up and hold for 30 seconds while in plank position. Repeat on other side.
