Plank with Row Combo

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.

  1. Reach Out: Grasp a D-Handle connected to the low pulley on a cable station (a band is ok, too).
  2. Row It: Keeping your body still, row the handle until your hand is under your shoulder.
  3. Stay Straight: Your torso will want to twist without the support of the arm – resist it.
