How to do a reverse plank to strengthen your lower back, glutes, hamstrings and abs

Exercises that target your core and get those abs rippling have long been the focus of many when it comes to fitness. Not only for their notoriety for helping achieve a ripped beach body, but also for the ability they have to improve stability, improve posture, and optimize overall strength.

While traditional planks have become the go-to exercise for those looking to improve their core strength, there’s one related exercise that should be getting just as much attention, and that’s its lesser-known cousin: the reverse plank.

Also known as a supine plank, the reverse plank is a bodyweight exercise that engages the core muscles along the lower back, glutes, and abdominal region. It is about assuming a position similar to the traditional plank but with the body facing upwards, towards the sky, supported by the hands and heels.
