Plank

Planks are like the bread and butter of core workouts. Imagine holding the top of a push-up position. You keep your body straight like a board, from your head to your heels. This move is all about keeping still and strong for a bit of time.

Here’s why planks are awesome:

  1. Core Strength: Planks light up your entire core – that’s your belly, sides, and back. A strong core helps with balance, posture, and pretty much every move you make.
  2. Easy on the Back: Unlike some ab exercises, planks are kind to your back. They strengthen your core without putting too much pressure on your spine.
  3. Flexibility Boost: While you’re in a plank, you’re stretching the backside of your body, like your shoulders, shoulder blades, and even your hamstrings.
  4. Better Posture: Doing planks regularly helps you stand and sit straighter, which is great for your back and neck.
  5. No Equipment Needed: You can do planks anywhere – at home, in the park, or in a tiny hotel room. No gym or gear required.

To do a plank:

  • Start in a push-up position but keep your forearms on the ground.
  • Keep your body straight, like a plank, from your head to your toes.
  • Squeeze your glutes to keep everything tight.
  • Hold this position for as long as you can. Aim to add a few more seconds each time you do it.

Planks are simple but super effective. Whether you’re just starting out or you’re a workout pro, throwing planks into your routine is a solid move for a stronger core.
