How to Do this exercise:
To do the “Plank” you won’t be required to do any movement at all. You should only take 1 position and hold your body in that position for at least five minutes. It’s essential to keep the body properly.
First, you should lie on the stomach. After that, you need to lift your body the same way when you do push-ups, with just 1 small difference: for this exercise you need to bend your elbows 90 degrees and also to rely on the forearms. It’s very important to keep the body flat-plank, because this way you’ll activate every muscle in your body. If you want to do the exercise properly, you mustn’t relax during the exercise.
Feet – Move them close to preserve pressure on your stomach muscles.
Legs – You should keep the legs straight and tight so to constantly pressure the right stomach muscle.
Buttocs- Don’t relax the buttocks at all, to successfully activate your muscles on the lower torso.
Lower back – The crucial part in this exercise. You should keep your lower back flat in order for your exercise to be give results. Don’t curve or dent it and don’t relax at any point.
Stomach – You should try to get the stomach in as like when a guy with big belly tries to tuck in his stomach under his ribs to be more hot for some girl. That’s what you need to do here, but you shouldn’t keep your breath, you should breath normally.
Elbows – Hold the elbows at a angle of 90 degrees directly under the shoulders. This will be very helpful for the strain.
You should remember that it’s best to hold this position as long as you can. Start slowly if you’re not fit. Then try to keep this position for 15 seconds, and then repeat this 5 times between two minute breaks. You should increase the time for holding this position each day. It’s crucial to do this exercise every day to get the maximum results.
