Stir the Pot
Stir the pot "is essentially a dynamic version of the plank that works more core muscles in a shorter amount of time," Richard told POPSUGAR. It activates the same supportive core muscles as a plank but adds movement, passing the workload to different muscle groups. "This is essentially an exercise that works six different core muscle groups in one," Richard said.
- Begin in an elbow plank with your forearms resting on the top of a ball.
- Keeping your core strong and your body still, use your arms to roll the ball in a small clockwise circle. This completes one rep.
