This is a really challenging exercise as there is constant tension on your core, so perform three to five reps for two or three sets.
- Adopt the Plank position with your feet on the sliders. Brace your abs and legs, and then pull your entire body forward, pivoting around the shoulders. The movement starts from your upper body — your legs don't assist at all.
- Go as far as you can while maintaining a flat lower back. It's essential your hips don't sag.
- The body must move as a connected unit.
- Hold for a brief moment, and then push yourself backward, past the start position, as far as you can go. The same rules apply. The movement comes from the upper body and your legs don't assist. Always maintain a flat back.
Finally, remember that you can't out-train a bad diet — eating properly is equally important!
