Do it the reverse way. Yeah go on, you know you want to.

The Reverse Plank
A strong core is the basis of all exercise and this simple move is a great way to strengthen it!

1. Sit with your legs together, straight out in front of you.
2. Place your hands by your sides, palms flat on the floor, so your torso is reclined back slightly.
3. Raise your hips up off the floor until they’re straight/at the top of their range of motion. Hold this position, squeezing your glutes and not letting your hips drop down.
4. Work on building up to a 2 minute hold.
