12 Days of Fitness Day #1: Planks


On the first day of Fitness

My Y Coach gave to me

One minute planking by the tree.


The plank is a simple and effective body weight exercise that you can do anywhere. In the plank position you are forced to hold your body in a position that engages the core (abdominal muscles), shoulders, arms and glutes. When you become fatigued or if your core is a little weak it is easy to use suboptimal form. Don’t do it!! Check your form in the mirror or ask a fitness friend to make sure that you are performing the exercise correctly. Below are links to two videos to help illustrate how to plank correctly.
