The move: Plank to pike
Get in the standard plank position (hands shoulder-width apart on the floor, feet hip-distance apart, back flat) except place your feet on the office chair. Engage your deep abdominal muscles as you slowly lift your butt to the sky, forming a pike (or upside down "V") position. Lift into the pike position for a count of four, and lower to the starting position for a count of four. Start with five reps, working up to 20.
