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. M
odified 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.
