WHY: "It engages the lower and upper abs, the lower back, and the hip flexors—the muscles at the top of the legs and groin—which is a general weakness in both cyclists and runners," says Dixon.
HOW: Place feet in straps and get in a plank position on your hands. Pull your feet toward your shoulders while lifting your hips high in the air, keeping your legs straight. Return slowly to start.
