4 Plank Exercises That Work More Than Just Your Abs





1. Lie on your stomach, flat on the floor. Push up onto your forearms.

2. Bend your elbows and rest your weight on your forearms.

3. Keep your elbows under your shoulders.

4. Pull your belly button towards your spine.

5. Your body should form a flat line. Don’t let your hips sag, and don’t push your butt up—keep your body in a straight line.

6. You can do this plank on your hands instead of your elbows if you prefer (if you feel any pain or stiffness in your wrists, balance your weight on your elbows instead).
