Place your elbows underneath your shoulders, curl your toes under and engage your abs by tilting your pelvis and pulling your belly button toward your spine.

Straighten your body but keep your neck and spine neutral. Imagine that you’re a plank of wood, and that you’re straight as an arrow.

Hold the plank for 15 secs and repeat 3 times.

If your lower back starts to collapse, stop the exercise. Make 60 secs your goal.
