Discover the Simple Trick to Make Your Core Workouts WAY Harder

September 07, 2015 1 min read

Want to double down on the effectiveness of your core workouts? Here's a simple trick that works wonders: Get into the plank position (on your hands and feet, back straight, butt down, body in a nice straight line). Make sure to dig your fingers into the floor (to take the weight off your wrists) and push your upper back and shoulders away from the floor. plank Now, tense every muscle in your body at the same time. Go through the checklist of your muscles:
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Shoulders
  • Traps
  • Triceps
  • Abs
  • Glutes
  • Obliques
  • Calves
  • Quads
  • Hamstrings
  • Biceps
Try to make sure each one of them is fully tensed, and hold the flex. Now, fill your lungs with as much air as you possibly can, hold it for a second, then expel every bit of air from your lungs until you have nothing left to blow out. Repeat this up to five times (not many people can get past the 5-count), and you're done! Why is it more effective than a regular plank? Simple: you're flexing all of the muscles in your body, meaning you're developing more tension in the muscles. Plus, your abs control your breathing, so this unique breathing technique can help to strengthen your core. Source: Men's Health
