Medicine Ball Plank - Progression - Intermediate Core Exercise

By placing your feet on a medicine ball you can progress the difficulty of the standard floor plank. This exercise is best used during an abdominal or core exercise routine because it  solely challenges your transverse abdominis muscle. The harder the surface and the harder the medicine ball increases the difficulty of the medicine ball plank. A medicine ball with a larger circumference also increases the difficulty of this exercise by raising the distance the lower body must be stabilized off the ground. The medicine ball plank is best performed if you put the balls of your feet or the soles of your shoes on the medicine ball.
