HOW TO DO A 28 DAY PLANK CHALLENGE?

HOW TO DO A PLANK?

Lie with your face down on a mat and lift your body, keeping your legs straight and your arms straight from the shoulder. Remember to press through heels to lengthen your legs and keep your backs straight and feel tightness on your stomach.

Pull the belly button towards your spine and up towards your ribs while keeping your back flat.

Now you are in the plank pose. Hold it for the required time, and then let go gently.

While this was the classic plank pose, you can also try the following type of planks.

Elbow bend plank

Toe top planks

Two-point plank ( also known as Reaching plank)

Side plank

Side leg-lift plank

Why do the 28-day plank challenge?


Planking involves including several body muscles – like your arms, legs, lower and upper abdomen, lower and upper back, and butt. Doing a plank challenge doesn’t require much space; you can do it in your bedroom and not have to run to the gym. Holding the plank position for the time necessary will burn some fat and tone your muscles. While the plank posture seems easy, holding the plank isn’t, but holding the position will benefit your body.
