Planking for Beginners:
Is that 30 second plank too hard for you? Make sure you have the right form first!
Keep your elbows and shoulders aligned. Make sure your stomach is tight and firm and that your butt isn’t up in the air. This is important.
After you got the position right, hold for 30-seconds. Do you feel your stomach or arms quivering beneath you? That means your core or arms or both aren’t strong enough yet.
Here is the best way to build up to a longer plank.
Every day, start with a 20-second plank. Do this 5-10 times throughout the day. That’s only 2-4 minutes of your day!
If you do it for shorter periods of time but more often, it will help build up endurance.
Once this gets easy, go to a 25-second plank, then 30-seconds.
Soon you’ll be able to do 2 minutes of planking with ease!
