🛑Are you doing the plank wrong⁉️
If you're holding a plank for more than a minute you aren't using the proper muscles anymore, and if you are, then you need to choose a more challenging exercise.
Check out these simple cues to plank your way to a stronger midsection:
1️⃣Elbows under shoulders
2️⃣Heels to the ceiling
3️⃣Pull your belt buckle to chin (posteriorly tilt pelvis)
4️⃣Draw belly button in towards your spine and contract glutes and quads hard.
5️⃣Oh and make sure you breathe 😤
💪Try This For An Additional Challenge‼️
🔵Elbows slightly ahead of your shoulders pull into the ground towards your feet.
🔵With your heels to the ceiling pull the ground towards your head.
🔵Essentially you're pulling the ground together as if it were splitting apart underneath of you, and you were about to fall into the fiery depths of Earth. 🔵Your body will start shaking like an overloaded washing machine if you're doing it right. -
🤷♀️Why plank? 🤷🏾♂️
The core is your foundation for strength and an active lifestyle. A lot of folks don't know how to engage their core to it's full capability, as a result their body adapts to create stability elsewhere. This typically results in low back pain, immobilized hips, and often poor posture and movement dysfunction. -
✔️The plank if an effective exercise to understand how to activate your core and build isometric strength. However, it's not the end-all be-all. Your core is a dynamic group of muscles require strengthening in all movement planes. I'll cover this in a future post so be sure to check back soon! -
