Plank – The key to toned abs .

  • Planks are a phenomenal exercise for core strengthening, as they engage multiple muscle groups simultaneously
  • Planks can give you a tighter tummy, improved posture, flexibility, and balance, a better mood, and less back pain

  • Planking has become increasingly popular for core strengthening, and for good reason: it works – in large part because it engages multiple muscle groups simultaneously. Some Benefits of the plank are :

    1.A Toned Belly

    Planking will help build your deep inner core muscles that lay the groundwork for those great tight abs. As your abdominal muscles become stronger, your mid-section will tighten.

    2.Reduce Back Pain

    Planks work for back pain because they strengthen your core, which has the pleasant “side effect” of reducing back pain. They also strengthen your back muscles, especially those in your upper back.

    3.Flexibility

    While building strength, planks also increase flexibility in your posterior muscle groups.To increase the stretching benefits, try a rocking plank – once in basic plank form, rock your body back and forth by moving your toes up and down.

    4.Improve Your Mood

    Virtually every exercise has the potential to give you a mood boost, and planks are no exception. Planks are unique, however, in that they help stretch and ultimately relax muscles groups that often become stiff and tense .

    5.Improve Your Balance and Posture

    If you do planks regularly, you’ll find you’re able to sit or stand up straighter with ease.

  • With exercise, sometimes the simplest of movements result in the greatest gains to your fitness, and this is certainly the case with planks.
