Doing plank for a minute every day will help you lose weight and tighten your body, said experts. Moreover, this exercise is considered one of the most effective for strengthening abs.
How to do it?
Take an upright position while lying on your elbows parallel to the floor. Keep your elbows at shoulder level. Do not round your back up and do not bend to the floor, the body should be lined up, and the muscles should be as tense as possible.
At first glance, it may seem that this exercise is not difficult. But an unprepared person is unlikely to be able to do plank for a long time. Therefore, it is recommended to start from 20 seconds a day, gradually adding several seconds, until it reaches a minute.
This exercise, according to experts, tones the entire body - from the shoulders and arms to the gluteal muscles and hamstrings. This is also the best exercise for you to get those abs of steel.
