Plank Rows

This is one of my favorite exercises. It really involves the entire body! It is an advanced exercise so start slowly.

Crunches on stability ball

This advanced abdominal crunch is an excellent way to isolate the rectus abdominis. However, you must be careful when doing this exercise! You should feel it in the abdominals and not the low back. If you feel it in the low back you need to adjust your position on the ball.
