Abdominal Workout for Power Lifter

by Peter K.
(Reading, UK)

Hi. I'm doing power lifting and I feel that my abs are the weak point of my body. Can you tell me which exercise should I do to make them more powerful?


Although it may seem like one of the easiest exercises, my recommendation would be the plank.

Here is what I would suggest you work up to (you may fatigue at just 30 seconds at first - that's okay, just gradually build up to 2 minutes):

2 minutes elbow plank
2 minutes right side plank
2 minutes left side plank
2 minutes elbow plank

As you master 2 minutes with the plank, transition to doing it on an exercise ball! That is one of my favorite abs exercises!

Good luck,
