Planks are a bodyweight exercise that targets the muscles of the abdomen, particularly the rectus abdominis and the obliques. Planks also help to improve stability and balance.
Here’s how to do a plank:
- Start in a push-up position with your hands shoulder-width apart and your feet hip-width apart.
- Engage your core and keep your body in a straight line from head to heels.
- Hold this position for the desired amount of time, keeping your core engaged and your body still.
You can also modify the plank by performing it on your forearms instead of your hands, or by doing it with your feet on an unstable surface such as a Swiss ball. As with any exercise, it’s important to listen to your body and stop if you experience any pain or discomfort.
