Plank it out! Why plank is so darn good for you.
Build strength from the inside out with plank and these plank variations!
The traditional plank is a well-known and very popular exercise.
It engages your core from deep within. This exercise and its variations will strengthen your abs, back and hips – giving you great core stability and strength. The plank is so beneficial because it works the deep core muscles, as well as the larger core muscles that surround them. Be sure to breathe while holding in plank. A lot of people tend to forget to focus on proper breathing while holding their core tight.
Below are some variations on the standard static plank.
1) Plank in out taps
2) Side plank with twist touch
3) Plank up downs
4) Side plank dips on a stability ball
5) Plank on stability ball with alternating leg raise
Check out our Facebook page each day this week for each of these plank variations to be demonstrated visually!
