Tuesday is plank night! Planks are a great way to develop core strength. Your abdominal muscles provide support for our entire back. So a strong core can help prevent injuries and improve performance in many activities, including sports.
Get the whole family to participate in this challenge. Hold a full (high) plank for one minute. Take a 30 second break, then hold an elbow plank for another minute. Make sure your body alignment is straight and parallel to the floor. Do these plank exercises 3-4 times per week. Each week, add on another minute until you can do this five minute plank workout by Darebee. By the end of the month, you will have a much stronger spine and core.
