Everyone wants flat abs. So flat that they are as rock solid and stable as a plank! The plank will give you plank abs. This exercise offers incredible results in little time. The plank not only gives you the abs you want, it also strengthens your arms and legs while improving balance. Here are some plank practices to try at home…

  1. The Plank. You want to be in the posture for a high push-up. Hands will be directly under the shoulders. Feet will be a hips width distance at the back of your mat, toes will be flexed and balancing the weight. Experiment with your tailbone by tucking in or arching out to complete the flat design of the plank. Relax shoulder blades down the back. Engage the core!
  2. Side Plank (left). Start in the plank position. Begin to open the front of the body to the right side, guide the weight into the left arm and leg. Allow your right hand to lift off the ground and reach up to the sky for balance. Balance on your left foot and arm. Right toes can stabilize if needed.
