When you’re at the gym, there is no need to work on only one body part. Multitasking moves not only save time, they also challenge the body in new ways. Add some rowing action to your plank to target not only your arms and back, but your core and glutes, too. Talk about a full-body exercise!

- Start in a plank position with your legs wider than hip distance; the wider stance makes you more stable. Hold onto your dumbbells, keeping your wrist locked to protect the joint.
- With your core tight and your glutes engaged, exhale, stabilizing your torso as you lift your left elbow to row; feel your left shoulder blade sliding toward your spine as you bend your elbow up toward the ceiling.
- Keeping your neck long and energized, return the weight to the ground, and repeat the movement on your right side.
- Do 10 reps per arm, and repeat for three sets.
