ABOUT THE BOOK
Ab workouts are an important aspect of physical fitness because the movements strengthen your torso. The focus should not be on a six-pack or washboard abs, but instead should be on developing core strength that will support the rest of your body, any heavy lifting, and, perhaps most importantly, your back.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK
To do a plank exercise, go into pushup position. Lower yourself to your forearms. Your elbow should be in line with your shoulders, and your body should be flat. Make sure your butt is not sagging or sticking up. This will make you engage your abs to hold your body in that position. Hold as long as you can, then take a 30 second rest. Repeat 3-4 times.
The Side Plank
For side plank, balance on one forearm, facing to the side. Raise your hips so your body makes a straight line. Hold as long as you can, then take a 30 second rest. Repeat twice, and then switch sides.
