Intensified Plank

| Fitness Index


Performing exercises on an unstable surface is a surefire way to engage more core muscles and make total-body exercises like planks or pushups even more challenging.

Move Targets: Abdominal muscles


Step 1: Place one, or both, hands on top of a foam roller. Complete a plank and hold for one minute.

Modification (Advanced): Slide the roller under your toes during either exercise. This will force your body to work harder to stabilize.
