Easy steps on how to do the plank for the perfect abs


What is plank?

Plank is one of the best exercises for strengthening your core. It is not only essential for your core but also for your entire body. The exercise involves holding your body in an isometric position which helps you in maintaining a tension constantly being static in one position. The plank exercise helps in several ways like strengthening your abs, shoulders, back and glutes.

Doing Plank can also help you in strengthening your arms and legs. For performing any exercises, the stability and the strength from your midsection of the body are highly required.  Be it shoulder presses or squats, a strong and stable core is highly necessary. Plank plays a pivotal role in improving the posture of an individual.
 

What are the variations in Plank?

The plank exercise can be done with several variations. The plank  variations are as follows:

Standard Planks

  • Place your hands under the shoulders like it’s usually done before doing a push-up.
  • Plant your toes on the ground(or the floor) and squeeze your glutes. This helps in stabilizing your body. Make sure you do not hyperextend your knees.
  • Your neck and spine should be neutralized by looking at a point on the floor which is about a foot beyond your hands. Your head should be aligned in the same line as your body.
  • You have to be in that position and hold it for 20 seconds. Hold your plank position as long as possible as you start getting comfortable with the position of the plank. Hold your position without disrupting your normal pattern of breath.

Forearm Plank

It is one of the easiest forms of practising plank. It is easier than holding your body up completely on your hands.

Your forearms should be placed on the floor supported by your elbows. Your elbows should be aligned below your shoulders and your arms should be placed parallel to your body. If you have flat palms bothering your wrists, it is always suggested to clasp your hands together.

Knee Plank

It is one of the best ways to start plans. Knee planks are always suggested for beginners. You can rest on your knees since it puts lesser stress on your lower back. If your knees hurt while resting it on the ground, you can use a rolled-up mat or a towel and put it under your knees.

Side Plank

The side muscles of your core get strengthened by the practising side plank.

  • You have to lie down on your back first. 
  • Stack one leg on top of the other
  • Support your body on your elbow or hands and lift your body up.

You can also try raising opposite arms or legs. The Side plank can be made easier if you cross the upper leg in front of your body. This provides additional support.

Side-leg Plank

This variation of the plank exercise is practised by removing one point of contact from the ground. The side-leg plank focuses more on the core and its strengthening.

  • Position your body the same as to be done in the case of Standard Plank.
  • Lift one leg up comfortably. Try lifting it gradually towards the ceiling.
  • Do not compromise on the feeling of your back especially your lower back.
  • Keep your hip parallel to the floor and then alternate your legs.

Medicine- ball Plank

Take a medicine ball and plant your hands on it. It is more convenient than putting your hand on the ground. Trying to stabilize your body on an unstable ball helps in the strengthening of your core. You can position your body the same way as is done in the case of the Standard Plank. In the case of the Medicine- Bal Plank, place you should place your hands or forearms on the medicine ball just directly below your shoulder.

What are the benefits of the plank exercise?

Practising the plank exercise every day has a lot of benefits to it. Some of the most common benefits of Plank are as follows:
 
Strengthening of the core muscles in the body
 
Plank helps in shedding fat from various parts of the body especially from the waistline. It improves the functional performances for other activities and helps in the strengthening of the major muscles in the body which comes under the core muscle groups like transverse, straight and oblique abdominal muscles as well as the glutes i.e. the buttocks.
 
Reduced risk of spinal cord injuries and other back problems
 
Planks do not affect your spine or strain your back in any way. It has been observed that performing planks regularly can provide more support to your back and spinal cord. Practising planks strengthen the muscles around the lower back of a person besides other muscles too. Hence the practice of planks can provide more support to the back of the spinal cord of a person.
 
Boosts the metabolism of an individual
 
Performing planks every day can increase your metabolic rate. It is more recommended for the people who have a sedentary lifestyle since doing planks can highly enhance your metabolism both in the day as well as the night.

Improvement in posture
 
Practising plank exercise every day can even work on your posture of the body. It always helps in achieving a better posture of the body.
 
The coordination is improved
 
Plank provides better coordination of the body which can help you standing on one leg or even achieving a better balance during walking or standing or running. Planks help in strengthening the core muscles and gain more stability thus enhancing better coordination.
 
Increased flexibility
 
Performing Plank every day helps in improving your flexibility as well. The posterior muscles of your leg and back are stretched and expanded while practising plank and hence results in a much better flexible body.
 
Your mood will be improved
 
Plank helps in uplifting your mood by relaxing your muscles which got stiffened as a result of long-time sitting. 
 

What are the common mistakes in planking?

The most common mistakes that should be avoided while performing Plank?

  • Do not compromise on your breathing. It is a normal human nature to forget breathing when in a strenuous position. But stopping your breath might lead to headaches and dizziness.
  • Try to keep your hips up.
  • Never forget to keep your head and neck in the correct position beside your butts and hips. You should keep your eyes on the floor one foot ahead of your hands. This will help in putting your head and neck in a neutral position and prevents any kind of further pain.
