You want to have a tight and flat stomach and you do 100 crunches a day. Unfortunately this is not enough. The ultimate exercise for strengthening the torso and to see results in your abdominals is called plank. The plank exercises your core effectively and ensures a quality result, as it strengthens the muscles that surround your waist. The core is the alpha and the omega for your daily life, whether you do a sedentary or an orthostatic job, whether you read, or run, or jump, or go to the gym.
Now I will tell you the 5 best planks for me to get perfect abs and a strong torso.
With your elbows under your shoulders and your toes on the ground, you lean on your toes, keeping your knees up and being careful not to let your pelvis fall down. Try to hold the position for at least 30 seconds each time and keep your spine in a straight line throughout it.
In basic plank you push the knee in turn to the elbow performing the exercise until you can do no more repetition!
Be careful not to spoil your posture throughout the movements.
In basic plank you make pelvis turns, always passing through the center. You will put fire on your obliques!
This variant targets to the obliques, too.
You will turn to the side with your knees straight and lean on the one forearm.
You will lift the pelvis high until it forms a straight line with the ankles and the head.
Hold the position as long as you can! Do not forget to do the same on the other side.
From basic plank you will go from elbow to palm
and from palm to elbow, making plank in palms and plank in elbows in turns.
If you keep the verticality in the palm, elbow and shoulder, your abs will catch fire
and the strength in your arms will be tested to the maximum!
