The plank is crucial for six pack abs. This exercise creates the platform for which your abs will be resting on. In order to have a flat stomach, you must utilize planks.

This core exercise strengthens the muscles that hold your abs to your body. Therefore the stronger these stabilizer muscles the bigger your abs will appear and the flatter the stomach you will have.

According to the American Council of Exercise the plank is one of their top ten core exercises. It allows the body to increase the endurance of the abs including its stabilizer muscles.

How To Do The Exercise

 

1. Lie on your stomach with your arms positioned underneath your chest so you are resting on your forearms with your palms flat on the floor.

2. Push yourself up off the floor, so you are resting on only your toes, forearms, and elbows. Make sure to keep your back flat so your body makes a straight line from your head to your heals.

3. Flex and hold your abs for as long as possible. This will prevent your rear end from sticking up in the air and breaking the straight line form.

4. Hold the position for up to 60 seconds or until no longer able. Do this three times, but no more than five.

Tips

1. Keep your eyes focused on your hands. If you lift your head up, you are breaking the line that is working out your core, making the exercise less effective for your ripped abs.

2. Have a timer that you can look straight down at to know how long you’ve held the position. Usually it’s better to think about something else and to check on the time periodically. This will make the static ab workout seem shorter.

3. Remember to keep your abs flexed the whole time. The longer you can hold this static position, the more effect this core exercise will have for your flat stomach and six pack abs.
