BEN BRUCE: Technique | The Back Plank to Alternating Leg Lifts

The back plank is a great core and leg exercise. It is an an exercise used to fully engage the muscles of the lower back, the hamstrings and the abs. Once an athlete gets comfortable with the plank, he/she can make the exercise more dynamic by adding alternating leg lifts to the routing. Doing so further stresses the gluteus and abdominal muscles.
