Today I want to cover the benefits of plank exercises. With plank exercises, you’re stationary. You’re not contracting your muscles. There is the front plank (the regular version), and there is a modified version.

Modified version:
You’re on your knees and forearms. Your spine is straight. You’re keeping your shoulders back and down, and you’re not bending at the hip level.

Front plank:
You’re almost in a push-up position, but you’re on your elbows. You maintain this position.

There are other variations of this exercise. You can start out doing a set of 1-6 reps, holding the position for at least 10 seconds. You can work up to holding the position for 1 minute, resting between 30-90 seconds in between.

Potential benefits of plank exercises:
1. Builds core muscles (abdominal, back, sides, hips, buttocks)
2. Fixes posture
3. Helps with symmetrical strength
4. Strengthens tendons, ligaments, and muscles
5. Increases core stability
6. It’s a workout
7. Reduces stress
