This 4-Move Plank Workout Is Exactly What You Need to Strengthen Your Abs
If there were a connection between fitness and astrology, specifically birth charts, my rising sign would be strength training, my moon sign would be abs, and my sun sign would be recovery devices. Until someone can verify my fitness birth chart, I'm going to stick to what I know and love: ab-strengthening workouts. This quick and simple ab workout was designed with all levels in mind, and the best part is that it requires absolutely no equipment.
This four-move workout highlights the plank (one of the best ab exercises, in my opinion) and will work your obliques, deep core muscles, and the tiny muscles in your back that also happen to be a part of your core. This workout is short, but I promise you, it's going to feel like you did 15 minutes of nonstop ab work. Check it out ahead.
