Move Targets: Core
Step 1: Roll out into push up position, with your arms under your shoulders and your palms flat on the ground. The ball should be somewhere between your upper thighs and your ankles. The closer the ball is to your feet, the harder the plank.
Step 2: Your body should form a straight line from your shoulders to your ankles. Tighten or contract your core. Make sure your hips are not dipping towards the floor.
Step 3: Hold this position for 60 seconds and try to roll out further as your progress
Modification (Beginner): Drop to your elbows and roll the ball closer to your thighs. You can always break up the hold: plank 25 seconds, drop 10 second break, back up for 25 seconds.
