UP THE CHAL­LENGE

Men's Fitness - - Trainer -

You can use a gym ball to make fa­mil­iar moves more chal­leng­ing. As a gen­eral rule, mak­ing ad­just­ments to your work­out and the way you per­form ex­er­cises will pre­vent you from hit­ting a plateau where you find it dif­fi­cult to make progress be­cause you’ll al­ways be pos­ing a sig­nif­i­cant chal­lenge to your mus­cles.

KEY MOVE GYM BALL PLANK

Start with your fore­arms on the ball, your el­bows bent at 90° and your body in a straight line from head to heels. Hold that po­si­tion for as long as you can. Make sure your hips aren’t too high be­cause that means you won’t place enough ten­sion on your abs. If they start to sag, that will put stress your lower back.
