The Plank

An ab workout, as with any other targeted exercise, should be varied or rotate between specific exercises for the best results. Adding the plank pose to a routine builds endurance in the back and arms as well as the abs. An isometric, the plank pose tightens theabdominals as they help support the rest of the body.

To begin the plank pose, lie face down on a mat.Place palms flat on the floor and push straight up, keeping the back flat and a straight line from the crown of the head to the heels of the feet. The heels should point to the ceiling while the weight rests on the toes. 

Hold for twenty to sixty seconds, as your current level of fitness allows, then lower back to the floor.

Repeat three to five times.

The plank pose develops a strong core as well as strong arms and back strength.
