Elbow Planks

Recommended by many and given the golden thumbs up by research, performing the plank exercise on your elbows and toes is an extraordinarily effective exercise. Working the back and abdominals and building endurance in both, planks will get your muscles in great shape, without you even having to move a muscle. If you’re unfamiliar with planks, the first step is to get on the floor facedown. With your forearms resting on the ground, support your weight with your elbows and your toes. The rest of your body should be in a straight line, from your shoulders down to your feet. Try to hold the position for up to one minute and repeat three to five times. It may sound simple, but the burning sensation that accompanies this exercise tells another tale.
