Plank Progression - From Rookie to RIPPED ABS in 7 Minutes with Planks!

Go from Rookie to Ripped Abs :

One of the most commonly performed ab exercises is the plank or core plank exercise. Unfortunately, it’s also one of the most commonly misperformed and misunderstood ab exercises. There are so many ways to do a plank that simply referring to this core exercise as a plank is not doing it justice.

In this video I show you how to do a plank using six or seven different variations that not only increases the difficulty of the ab exercise but the amount of work the abs have to do to perform it. From changing elements like the length of the lever arm, the amount of suspension and the base of support, it’s possible to take an ordinary ab plank exercise and turn it into a six pack abs sculpter (when combined with a good nutrition plan of course!) in the time it takes me to discuss the differences.

Ripped abs are the envy of most any guy that hits the gym regularly and trains their core. Banging away at ab exercise after ab exercise looking for that six pack is not going to get it done however. In order to get the 6 pack abs to show you need to combine ab exercises that attack not only the lower abs, upper abs, midrange, and obliques but you need to also add in a good dose of core stability. The core plank exercise (and the progressions seen here) do just that.

== Basic core / abs plank on hands and knees

== Basic core / abs plank on hands and toes

== Basic core / abs plank on hands and toes with feet and hands close together

== Core / abs plank with forearms on the ground and on toes

== Core / abs plank with feet elevated on a bench

The ultimate six pack abs test == The core / Abs plank holding onto a 25 lb plate out in front of you while supporting your bodyweight on your toes!

Follow this core plank progression and then apply the same principles to every muscle group in your body with the ATHLEAN-X Training System by celebrity trainer Jeff Cavaliere.
