How To Perform the Plank:

1. Begin by laying face down on a mat with your arms bent underneath your shoulders.
2. Press your toes into the ground and raise your body up so you are balancing over your arms.
3. Make sure your back is straight, your neck is in a neutral position, and your shoulders are aligned over your elbows.
4. Hold the plank position for 30 seconds feeling a strong contraction in your core.
5. Repeat 3 times.
6. Work up to holding the contraction for 1 minute each.
