Variety For Core Strengthening

This is a great functional exercise for the advanced athlete that wants to add a little variety to core strengthening. Many athletes can get complacent and often times neglect to progress their planks. The soccer athlete will benefit here because it involves core strengthening while working on your knee drive and acceleration.

The key here is technique. In this exercise, you quickly drive your knee to the opposite shoulder while maintaining a plank position. The exercise should be a part of you entire strengthening program and can be performed 3 sets for 15 reps. See the video below to see how this exercise is performed.
