Plank with Row Combo
So you have conquered the plank. Make it harder by adding another movement to the exercise. Moving your limbs around while trying to maintain a plank is some of the hardest ab training you can do and a great way to prepare your body for the rigors of sports. Try the Plank Row.
Steps: Get into a plank position with your elbows under your shoulders. Brace your abs.
- Reach Out: Grasp a D-Handle connected to the low pulley on a cable station (a band is ok, too).
- Row It: Keeping your body still, row the handle until your hand is under your shoulder.
- Stay Straight: Your torso will want to twist without the support of the arm – resist it.
