The plank is one of the best exercises for your core as it helps to improve your posture and sculpt your waistline. Practicing plank you can engage your back, arms, shoulders, glutes, and hamstrings.
The big advantage of this exercise is that you don’t need to go to the gym because you can do it at home and shed the extra pounds.
In addition, to do aerobics twice a day if possible will be the real way how to get your body in the best shape of your life. As a second aerobic workout, you can practice a simple 30- to 40-minute walk in the evening after dinner.
The goal of this exercise is to keep a proper form. When you feel your hips sinking towards the ground, it is a time to get back into the starting position and readjust yourself.
After the repetition of the plank you get more comfortable with it, so you can increase the effects of the exercise by resting your weight on one leg instead of two or by wearing a weighted vest.
If you find it’s too difficult, modify the movement by lowering yourself onto your elbows and forearms instead of your hands. It is also important to warm-up properly before attempting, as with any other exercise.
