Build a solid foundation of strength – Don’t Just Train the Core on the Floor
Stand up to get the most out of your trunk strengthening.
Exercises such as weight carries, rack pulls, isometric and dynamic squats, hurdle drills and sprints are some of the best trunk and “core” strengthening activities out there.
I’m not saying that there is anything wrong with traditional planks, bird dogs, bridges or any other exercise but those are just the beginning!

There are so many more options depending on your body type, what output you're trying to achieve, what feels good, etc, etc...
