How to Plank
Planks are an exercise for your core (abdominals and low back).
When you are doing a plank, form is very important. When you feel like your form is failing, take a break to rest then try again.
How to Plank:
- Position your weight on your forearms, with your shoulders directly over your elbows. You should be up on your toes, feet slightly apart. If holding the position on your toes is not possible, hold on the position on your knees with your feet up and together.
- Hold this position with your head, shoulders, hips, knees and ankles in a nice straight line.
- When you cannot hold the position properly, stop.
Record your time so you can see improvement on your next plank.
