Rocking Plank gives you all of the core strengthening benefits of the traditional plank while also placing a greater emphasis on your upper back and the shoulders. Rocking planks are an excuse-free exercise that you can do anywhere and anytime. With no equipment required, you can do this exercise at home, in your hotel room, or anywhere else you have enough space to lie down.

 Downward Facing Dog

Downward dog opens up the chest and shoulders, which can help straighten your vertebrae and align your spine, leading to overall improved posture. Plus you do not need any equipment to perform it.

Boat Pose (Paripurna Navasana)

The boat pose engages all aspects of your core muscles without overworking them. This yoga posture involves core strength, coordination, and balance and can help strengthen the torso, stretch the hamstrings, and aid digestion.

 Side Plank

 Side planks are a simple yet effective exercise that can help you develop a strong, stable core while also strengthening your glutes, hips, and shoulders. This exercise can help you be able to sustain good posture and ease of movement by building a strong core and better balance.



Try these core exercises to help give you a great workout without any equipment. Of course, if you want to increase the intensity, feel free to use a mini band or weight to add difficulty.
