Plank Ladders | How to Get a Flat Stomach

Plank Ladders on StrongBoard Balance Board is a great workout for strengthening core & toning the stomach. It’s also our Founder’s favorite exercise!

1. Start in reverse plank position with hands on the floor, feet on StrongBoard platform. Make sure toes are all the way out, up against each platform handle.

2. Drop your right elbow down to floor where your hand was, followed by your left elbow, into forearm plank pose.

3. Bring yourself back to full plank by immediately pushing yourself back up with your right hand then your left.

4. Perform this segment of the exercise for desired amount of repetitions.

5. Thrust your feet off of the platform and onto the floor on each side of the board.

6. Walk your hands back and place them on platform.
