Plank Plus

 

A regular plank is not enough for you anymore. Make it harder by adding a row to work your back and core all at once.

 

Quick Tip: Set your feet shoulder-width apart or wider to start so you can balance. As you get stronger, move your stance in.

 

How To Do It:

Plank Dumbbell Row

 

  1. Get Set – Get into pushup position with your hands holding on to a pair of dumbbells with a neutral (palms-facing) grips. Keep your back flat and brace your core.
  2. Keeping your hips and shoulders level, row one dumbbell to your side. Begin by drawing your shoulder blade back. Alternate side on each rep.
