How To Do A Perfect Plank | Beginners Tutorial
A fitness series aimed at those fantasising about a super-fit body thats tight and well toned but have no idea how to achieve it!
This is part of a series that teaches you the basics, the bare necessities of working out if you will.
Any good workout capable of sculpting your body into that of a marble statue will entail the basics, all of which are covered in this series.
This one specifically teaches plank, one of the top core exercises to build isometric strength and cut your waistline to being totally toned.
Get into the correct position by placing your forearms and knees on the floor, then lift your knees.
Suck in your stomach and squeeze your glutes. Make sure your butt and lower back do not sink into the floor nor should your butt be pointed upward because this is the wrong form and has no effect on your abs whatsoever.
Flattening your back and keeping your whole body parallel to the ground while keeping your breathing normal is key.
The recommended amount of sets and repetitions is:
For Beginners: 1 set of 10-15 seconds For Regulars: 2 sets of 1/2 minutes
