Do More for Your Core

Dec 12 / Build Muscle

If you search around MuscleMorphosis.com, you'll see that we recommend a core exercise called the plank—a lot. That's because it's one of the best ways to strengthen a weak core. The idea is that you work up to holding the plank position for 30 to 60 seconds per set. Two problems: 1) After a few workouts, this gets boring, and 2) To continue make progress, you need to challenge your muscles in your new ways. One solution: The plank walkup to pushup. This exercise requires that you hold the plank position, but move your body at the same time, adding a whole new level of difficult to the exercise. Ready to try it? Then watch the video above to learn how to do the plank walkup to pushup with perfect form.
