Plank Series

The Plank is an excellent exercise to warm-up and strengthen your abdominals.  Technique is paramount as you align your body during the exercise.  The intention is to prepare your abdominals to maintain excellent posture throughout the core workout.

  1. Lie down on the floor with your elbow underneath your shoulder with your top side foot just in front of your bottom side foot.
  2. Contract your obliques while keeping length in your spine as your hip ascends from the floor.
  3. Hold for 10-15 seconds before transitioning to a front plank.
  4. Maintain the same postural alignment during the front plank.
  5. Transition to a side plank on the opposite side.
