VIDEO: Pre-season gym workout: Week 4


How to do it: One of the most commonly used core exercises, the plank should be a staple in any programme, regardless of your level. While it is understandably not one of the most exciting exercises, it certainly offers a way of strengthening not only your core, but also your entire body. From the push-up position, rest your weight on your forearms, which are positioned at a right angle to your upper arms, and parallel to your torso. Your body should form a straight line from your head to your feet. Hold the position for the required time. For a further challenge look to hold the position for even longer, or alternatively touch your shoulders with your opposite hands.
