I’ve got a “Do This, Not That” for you today that can make a BIG difference in your core strength.
Here it is:
Doing Different Types of Plank Exercises > Holding Longer and Longer Planks
Planks are recognized as one of the BEST EXERCISES you can do for your core because it works so many muscles at the same time.
But… let’s be honest. Planks are boring, they take a lot of time, and did I mention they were boring?
There’s even a joke about them: Want to learn how to slow down time? Do a plank!
Here’s what you can do instead…
Once you can hold a plank for 30-45 seconds, layer in different types of plank exercises.
Not only are they NOT boring, but they can be even more effective for your core strength than a regular plank.
The key is to add movement to your planks.
Here are a couple of variations to get you started:
Plank knee drop:
Plank shoulder tap:
Try doing these plank variations and see what you think! If they feel extra challenging, you can always drop your plank to your knees until you feel more comfortable with them.
