Get into a prone position on the floor, with your weight on your toes and your forearms. Your elbows should be directly below your shoulders, and your forearms can be forward or clasped. Keep your back straight in a line, and your core flexed. Holding this position gets harder the longer you do it.

Why it’s good:

It’s a very simple exercise, but one that really works a lot of your core.

What to watch out for:

Avoid dropping your head or raising your hips. The straighter you’re able to keep your line, the better off you’ll be.
