12 Best Core Stability Exercises, According to Trainers
12 Core Stability Exercises That Do More For Your Abs Than Crunches Ever Could
Core Stability Exercise: Elbow Plank
Kira Stokes, a NASM-certified trainer and creator of the Kira Stokes Fit app, recommends doing planks to improve your core strength and stability.
- Start face down on the floor, resting on your forearms and knees.
- Push off the floor, raising up off your knees onto your toes and resting mainly on your elbows.
- Contract your abdominals to keep yourself up and prevent your booty from sticking up.
- Keep your back flat — don't let it droop. Picture your body as a long, straight board, or plank, and hold.
