You could try the walking plank..start with the plank position..lower to on your elbows..hold for a count of 5..back to plank pisition..you could also try alternating hand raises as you hold the plank..tests your upper body strenght/endurance aswel as works your core..I hope the above helps

Lol because your abs arnt working their just contracted...for example flexing your bicep and holding it so you can see it in the mirror..is the bicep working? No..its just contracted..

Extension & contraction..is working the muscle group Hannah..adduction..abduction..

19 Feb
I was referring to the lengthening and shortening of the muscle fibers which is absent in isometrics...thus not "working "
19 Feb
Extension is th act of extending or being extended and adduction is to draw in toward the median axis of the body and these are Anatomical terms of motion..same as supination and pronation are also Anatomical terms of motion
19 Feb
Abduct is to draw away frm the midline of the body...
