It might seem strange to start a chest day with abdominal work, but too many people approach core training the way they approach cardio: as an afterthought, tossed in at the end of the fun parts of a workout. Can you burn some fat and strengthen your abs this way? Sure, but James Grage believes there's even more benefit to be found in turning your workout upside down, and using classic abdominal movements like planks and side-planks as part of your warm-up.
Every day, you'll use a core-intensive movement as part of your warm-up, including today's intense superset of isometric wiper push-ups and push-up-to-side-planks before you hammer your pecs. Both of these dynamic movements will get the blood pumping to your chest, shoulders, and abs, open your shoulders, and get your entire body primed to move serious weight in the bench press!
