Exercise of the Week – Plank

Target Muscles: Core (Abdominals & Lower Back) and Glutes.

Plank - Pro:Kinesis Personal Training, High Wycombe

Lie face down on the floor, then prop yourself up with your elbows directly under your shoulders, forearms flat on the ground and your hands together below your face or chin. Keeping your spine, hips and legs straight as shown, hold the position for as long as you can up to a maximum of  2 minutes.

A hugely effective exercise, which actually engages most of the major muscles groups. Brilliant to do at home, as absolutely no equipment required, and advanced by pushing yourself to hold it longer each time you perform it, up to the maximum.
