How To Do the ‘Planking’ Exercise
Starting Position: Start on a yoga mat in the traditional ‘push up’ position.
Exercise: Slowly lower your forearms to the ground so that your elbows and fists are touching the ground. Your elbows should be directly underneath your shoulders. Keep your eyes focused on the floor in front of you, engage your abdominal muscles by drawing your navel in toward your spine.
Hold your hips, shoulders and ears in alignment as much as you possibly can.
Hold the plank for 30-60 seconds, or until your body gives way!
