Strengthen Your Core and Glutes: Pushup Plank With Leg Lift

For some of you, a change in the routine crunches and reverse crunches is needed to ramp up your exercise program! Try this exercise the next time you are working out. You don't need any equipment, just your body. The pushup plank with leg lift is a great exercise to strengthen your core and glutes.

1. Start by lying face down on the ground. Place your hands underneath your chest.

2. Form a plank using your hands and toes as pillars. Keep your torso in line with your hips. Do not bow your back.

3. Maintain a straight back and do not allow your hips to sag towards the ground. Brace your torso as if someone is going to punch you in the gut.

4. Lift your right leg and hold for 3-5 seconds. Do the same with your left leg. That is one repetition. Do 3 sets of 10-12 repetitions with each leg.

Go for it!
