If a front plank is too hard, you can perform the movement from your knees as well. You would set up the same way, but instead of sending your toes back, you simply move your knees back one at a time.
If front plank is too easy, you can try removing one extremity from the ground at a time, say alternating hands, or alternating toes. You can also elevate your feet for an even bigger challenge.
What about forearm plank? You set up the same way! Instead of starting out on hands and knees, start out with your elbows and knees on the ground. Take the time to verify that your shoulders are above your elbows, then send your feet back one at a time.
Not sure how to incorporate plank into your workout routine? My workout cycles make that easy!
