How to Do the Perfect Plank (weight loss)

The plank is an isometric core strength exercise in which you hold a position comparable to a push-up for as long as you can.

Correct typical blunders
This is the activity that we all love to despise and despise to adore. A plank is a simple, efficient bodyweight exercise that can be done almost anyplace and requires no equipment (well, use your judgment).
The muscles that connect your upper and lower bodies, as well as your shoulders, arms, and glutes, gain strength by holding your body (light as a feather) stiff as a board.
This book will show you how to polish your planking (no, not that type) and how to avoid some of the most common plank blunders.
Variations on planks
Standard plank

  1. As though you were ready to do a push-up, place hands precisely beneath shoulders (slightly wider than shoulder width).
  2. To stabilize your body, dig your toes into the floor and compress your glutes. Your legs should be active as well, but avoid locking or hyperextending your knees.
  3. Look at a point on the floor approximately a foot beyond your hands to neutralize your neck and spine. Your back should be parallel to your head.
  4. Maintain the position for a total of 20 seconds. Hold your plank for as long as you can without compromising your form or breathing as you get more comfortable with the move.
