In order to obtain best results, you need to be positioned properly.
Here is how to do the “plank’ correctly:
- Place your hands on the floor, directly under your shoulders. Keep your neck straight and your head should be in line with your back.
- Ground the toes into the floor, but remember that your legs should be working as well, although the main focus is on the abdominal area. Therefore, squeeze the butt muscles while maintaining the plank position.
- Hold the position and be careful not to lose the flat position of the body.
- In order to maintain thus longer, you need to control your breathing as well, so inhale and exhale evenly.
