Simple Plank Overview

Planks are one of the most well-known exercises in any fitness routine. It's a fantastic method to improve your posture, balance, body alignment, and core strength while also improving your general health.

There are several variations to the exercise that you can try to increase the intensity and add more challenge to your workout such as:

How to Do It

  1. Get down on your all fours and extend your legs backward.
  2. Kick your body up on your toes. Now your body weight is shifted on your forearms and toes.
  3. Make sure your elbows are placed directly under your shoulders. 
  4. You can interlace your fingers or keep your palms facing down on the ground. 
  5. Keep facing forward and hold the position for 30 seconds to 1 minute. 
  6. Repeat for the desired number of reps. 

Simple Plank Tips

  1. Make sure your elbows are under your shoulders. 
  2. Do not sag your hips or hike them in the air. Ensure your body is in a straight line from your head to your toes. 
  3. Keep your core embraced throughout the exercise. 
  4. Do not let your back round up.
