How to Perform Plank Exercise Perfectly

Plank is a great exercise for targeting your core and your arm muscles, just like push-ups your body weight has to be balanced by your arms which makes a great exercise for burning the accumulated fat in the arms. 

You can start with the elbow plank and then to the full body plank. 

There are various variations of plank exercises and if you are looking to reap all the benefits from the exercise then you should try them all. 

How to Hold A Plank Position
  1. Get into pushup position on the floor.
  2. Now bend your elbows 90 degrees and rest your weight on your forearms.
  3. Keep your torso straight and rigid and your body in a straight line from ears to toes with no sagging or bending.
  4. Your head is relaxed and you should be looking at the floor.
  5. Hold the position for 5 - 15 seconds. (You can hold it for long periods as you improve)
