How can I keep my core tight while exercising?

Try planks: Planks are an exercise move that can strengthen the core while maintaining a neutral spine. You can perform this by getting into a push up position and holding this position or get on your elbows while keeping your belly off of the floor. Try this before you workout and you will notice that you activate your core more during the workout.
