Step 1: Plank
While in this position, brace and tighten your abs area. Hold this position for 30 to 60 seconds while breathing deeply.



Step 2: Plank With Leg Raise
Hold your abs in tight, lift and hold one foot a few inches off the floor, foot flexed. Do 10 lifts on one side, and then switch legs.



Step 3: Side Plank 
Hold this position for 30 seconds per side (or longer if you can), bracing your abs and breathing deeply for the duration of the exercise.



Step 4: Side Plank With Leg Lift 
Press your hips up and keep your abs engaged the entire time. Hold this position for 30 seconds each side.



Step 5: Straight-Arm Plank
Brace your abs and squeeze your abs to help keep your body rigid. Hold this position for 30 seconds.



Step 6: Straight-Arm Plank On Medicine Ball
Spread your fingers wide and press hands firmly into the ball. Draw your shoulder blades down and back. Hold this position for 30 seconds.




Step 7: Downward Dog Splits
Keep your leg extended with toes pointed and your abs tightened the entire time. Hold this position for 30 seconds and then come back to center and switch sides.
