How to BOSU Plank
You Should Feel This: Abs
Exercise Families: Plank
Equipment: BOSU Ball
Trainer: Ashley Steele
Place your hands on the sides of the BOSU ball and move into the push-up position with your legs in a straight line behind you and feet hip-width apart.
Slowly shift your weight forward until your shoulders are positioned directly over your hands. Reposition the body as needed to allow full extension of the arms without any bend at the hips or knees. This is the starting position.
Brace your abdominals and ensure that your hips are level to the ground with your spine in a neutral position. Hold this position for the specified amount of time, breathing deeply throughout.
Planks primarily strengthen your core muscles including your transverse abdominus, rectus abdominals, and obliques; but because they involve your full body to hold the position, you also engage your arms, glutes, quads and more.
