How to do a Proper Plank

Target Muscle: Abs, Glute

Quick Tips:

  • Shoulder down, engage your abs and core muscles and think about your heels going outwards.
  • DO NOT arch or curve your back, otherwise all the stress will be on your lower back and will worsen your condition.
  • To hold a longer plank you should also engage hamstring and glute muscle
  • Stop immediately and rest if you feel you are no longer engaging your abs and your lower back started to tense up.
