Get into pushup position on the floor.
Now bend your elbows 90 degrees and rest your weight on your forearms. Your elbows should be directly beneath your shoulders, and your body should form a straight line from your head to your feet. In order to target the lower body try to contract the muscle of the buttock. And don’t forget to stay still, without raising your buttock, so it stays straight and not in a triangular shape. And generally you stay in that position, staring down your timer as the minute or more runs down. You need to start contracting the abdominal muscles and remain in this position for 20-60 seconds. Hold the position for as long as you can. Your goal should be to hold it for two minutes. The best thing about this exercise is that you don’t need any equipment and it will take just 1 minute of your day to do it.
Repeat the plank 3 times in a row, on a daily basis, and in a month, you will be astonished by the effects!
Next time, try to increase the time of keeping the plank position up to a minute or more, depending on with how much you started.
