A plank is one of the best ways to train abdominals to function as they're supposed to in order to stabilize the spine. Start with a couple of paper plates underneath your feet and bring your hands forward into a plank position. From here, tuck one knee in at a time and then come back out to the plank, focusing on smooth control and keeping the spine neutral. To progress this, bring both knees into the tuck and press them out and back into the plank again, really maintaining a nice lifted position underneath.
