Kick your planks up a notch by trying planks with a leg lift. They are great for core and back strengthening.

To perform planks with a leg lift:

  1. Get down on your elbows in a plank position with your back straight and your buttocks tucked in.

  2. Keeping your legs straight, lift one leg slightly in the air and slowly come back down. Repeat with the other side.
