Score Strong Abs Without Crunches

Skip doing hundreds of neck-crunching sit-ups and use planks to strengthen the abs, back, arms, and glutes.
Score Strong Abs Without Crunches
At the gym, try a basic plank for strong abs.

The best way to get a strong, stable core isn’t doing hundreds of neck-crunching sit-ups. Holding the body in a plank position strengthens the abs, back, arms, and glutes. Remember to keep the body in a straight line from head to toes to get the most out of this static exercise move.

Gimme Ten:

Master the plank before attempting push-ups (which begin and end in the same position).   

Loose and Limber:

Begin any workout with a dynamic warm-up to prevent injury.
