How to plank! Are you
– Engaging quads by lifting knee caps up your leg
– Engaging glutes by squeezing buttocks (apples not apple sauce! Thanks to Marin from TRX Sydney)
– Engaging core by drawing belly toward spine and your spine toward your belly.This will have you feeling strong through your torso, hips and legs.
There are no ‘soft bits’ in a plank of wood, so there should be no soft bits in your plank! Start with 10 sets of ‘10sec ON and 5sec OFF’.
Progress the ON period of your plank each week by 5 seconds until you reach a 30second plank, and then start introducing movement into your plank.
