plank workoutAwhile ago, I had a severe back injury that made my life hell and prevented me from exercising like I normally would. One thing was for certain, I needed to at least maintain my core with consistent core exercise. Because if I wanted to at least maintain my quality of life, then I needed to strengthen my entire trunk area. All I knew about building a strong mid-section was some floor exercises and how to use isolation exercise machines. However, my doctor and physical therapists did not approve my normal core exercise. So, I did a ton of research and tried to find the best exercises I could use that:
  1. Didn’t require me getting on floor
  2. Wasn’t too strenuous, but could still challenge me
  3. Was short yet effective
  4. Could be done anywhere and at any time

What Core Exercise is Good for You?

Then, I used these exercises on a daily basis and even kicked it up to doing twice per day for 15 minutes each. Moreover, I found that it helped me cope better with my back issues, and I also recovered quicker. So, this lead to what I have recently published – “The 15-Minute Standing Abs Workout Plan: Ten Simple Core Exercises to Firm, Tone, and Tighten Your Midsection.”

First of all, I want you to grab my free copy of the “The 15-Minute Standing Abs Workout Plan.” This book lays the groundwork for building a rock solid core, so read through it and apply this 15-minute routine to your daily habits for one week. I promise, if you put the effort in, then you will see the results.

Next, my blog at has a series called “Is Your Foundation Strong?!” The content I posted is a mixture of some stuff that I’ve published and other blog-exclusive content.

How to See Results in Core Exercise

Finally, if you start to use these tips in your daily routine, do me a few HUGE favors:

  1. Measure your midsection before you start using the plan and after one week of using the plan
  2. Share this program with a friend so they can do it along with you
  3. Share your progress with me on Facebook at AuthorDaleRoberts
