Are you tired of the same old plank exercises? Why not try adding a band to the mix?
It doesn’t take long before planks get old. This sends people off on a quest to find the latest ab shaping exercise.
But not all ab exercises are created equal.
Wharton School professor Dr. Russell Ackoff made an interesting observation…
The righter you do the wrong thing the wronger you become.
With all the back wrenching core exercises out there the professor could have been referring to any number of ab routines posted online.
So, be careful. You have to choose your ab exercises wisely.
Many of the popular exercises you see plastered on-line take a toll on your spine. Do too many and risk messing you up your spine. Sometimes for life.
That brings us back to plank.
But not all that exciting.
However, the simple addition of a resistance band breathes new life into a stale core routine and takes your ab training to the next level.
So, if you’re looking to work your abs in a safe yet unique and effective way, grab a resistance band and put these 14 plank variations through the wringer.
