Re: Easy exercises for building core strength (for beginners)
If you do a plank and your lower back starts hurting, just switch to downward dog which is the lower back stretch. <removed> When I first started pilates, I couldn't hold a plank as long as the others for your very reason. Just keep doing it. It'll get better.
