Has there ever been a simpler exercise that produced such great results? We think not. The Plank is great for strengthening your core, legs, arms and mental grit. Start by holding the plank for 30 seconds and work up from there. If you’re just starting out, keep your knees on the ground, and work up to straight legs. Exercise - The Plank Instructions: Get into pushup position on the floor. Bend elbows 90 degrees, resting weight on your forearms. Ensure elbows are directly beneath shoulders. Body should form a straight line from your head to your feet. Hold for 30 seconds, or as long as you can.
