The plank, which you might already do at the gym, is like the top of a push up except your at rest, and you can be propped up by your elbows or your hands. It’s a pose that considerably tones your abs, and improves your upper body shape simultaneously. Its a confidence-boosting strength pose that will help with a six pack.

The bridge works your hip flexors and strengthens your lower back, essentially the muscle groups of your body that you use when you’re thrusting during sex. Holding a bridge pose is also similar to doing a Kegel which works the same pelvic muscles. This bridge greatly improves posture, by bending and stretching your back and front side the opposite directions to help return to its natural curvature.
