Exercise Of The Week – PLANK
The plank exercise will develop stronger and more flexible abs. I feel core specific training should be a big part in everyone’s training. You can develop and increase overall dynamic flexibility by adding this exercise into your workout program.
First, start off by getting into a pushup position. Bend your elbows and rest your weight on your forearms. Your body should be in a straight line from your shoulders to your ankles. Brace your core and hold; your abs will be engaged the whole time. Let your fitness level determine how long you can hold this position. A good starting point is 30 seconds to one minute, then try for bettering your time from week to week. Try to do this exercise a couple of times per week and watch your core develop and become stronger.
