You’ve done the Plank and master it, and now looking for a way to make it harder and more interesting. Try the Plank with One Arm Row. This exercise will work your total core, and upper back.
Start in the plank position with hands on the ground, holding onto a set of free weights. Ensure that your abs are pulled in and firmed; head, neck and spine are in line. Without moving your body (as much as possible), lift one weight up towards the side of the body brushing the elbows close to your side. Bring the weight down towards the ground but do not allow them to rest completely on the ground. Repeat.
Do about 12 – 15 reps with one arm then switch to the other side. Make sure to watch your form. Do not allow your hips to drop down, forming a slight arch in your back.
Add this exercise to your abdominal routine and let me know how you do. Enjoy!!
