plankThis exercise for strengthening your trunk/core requires no equipment; just you and gravity.  The picture above demonstrates “plank”.  During this time of year when many of you struggle with exercise time; do plank to hit those abs. A strong core is key to wellness.  Hold plank for 15 seconds, relax, then work up to 30 seconds, or a minute. You will feel your arms and shoulders too.

More advance moves include raising a leg or an arm; but let’s keep it simple for the start of this New Year on our heels.  If you own a Bosu, you can do this as shown below to add difficulty and stability to this move.
