Sharpen your ab workouts with body saw planks! The best type of ab workout is one that will work more than just one part of your abdominal muscles. The plank exercise is one of the best for creating a flat, toned stomach because it works all the muscles in your core. Not only does having a strong core look good, but it also helps provide support for your entire body for everyday movements, helps reduce back pain, and also improves your posture.
A body saw plank is a great progression from just a regular plank, during this exercise you create a massive contraction in your abs. It's great for improving core strength, improving balance and stability, and improves posture.
