Who doesn’t want a fit body? I know that having delicious food is our weakness, but we still can count the calories and do a little bit of exercise, right? And when we want abs, there is a lot we should do apart from crunches. Did you know that planks work well when it comes to having perfect abs? Only a few minutes of planks engages our mid-section of our body and will help get us in shape. It is not easy for everyone to get a perfect waist because it involves many exercises and not just one.
But to make things easier, here is a 5 minute plan where you don’t need to do much movement and would get toned butt, chest and back.
1. Full Plank
This one is the simplest form of plank and is still going to make you feel the burn in your muscles. It strengthens your entire body and provides correct posture and balance. For achieving results, you should hold out this plank for 30 seconds, at least two times during your entire workout.
2. Elbow Plank
This is quite similar to the classic plank, the only difference being that you need to support your body with your forearms, instead of your palms. This also needs to be done twice for 30 seconds.
3. Raised leg Plank
Get in the position of elbow plank and then you need to raise your right leg over the left. Hold it for 30 seconds and then, do the same by switching the legs.
4. Side Plank
Move to the side and raise your upper body, by giving it support by your forearm. Maintain a straight line from head to toe and hold it for 30 seconds. Repeat the same on the other side.
If you follow it and try to do these planks twice, the entire day, you are going to get good results.
