Don’t Ignore Your Core

Today many folks spend their day slouched over the computer screen which can be hard on the core. Core exercises not only help improve posture but can also help you develop fab abs to show off in your bathing suit. Planks are some of the best core exercises around and can be done anywhere. To do a plank, get into a push-up position, only put your forearms on the ground instead of your hands. Line your elbows directly underneath your shoulders and press your toes to the ground. Squeeze your glutes and tighten your abdominals, creating a straight, strong line from head to toes. Hold the position for as long as you can, and work your way up to a minute.
