Benefits of a Plank
Planks are Convenient and Free
Planking only takes a couple of minutes to do. No equipment or gym membership needed.
A Strong Core is a Strong Back
We use our core and back in most activities of daily living; i.e. picking up items off the floor, vacuuming, lifting a small child, carrying a basket of laundry, bending over to empty the dishwasher, shoveling snow. Protect your back by strengthening your core.
Planks Help Prevent Exercise-Related Injuries
Regardless of whether you are squatting, dead-lifting or doing an overhead press, they all require a strong core to help prevent injury.
Planks Boost Mental Health
Exercise is great for your mental health. It boost the “feel good” endorphins that make us feel better about ourselves.
The word plank refers to a board. Keep your head, shoulders, hips and ankles in a straight line like a board. Make sure your hips aren’t drooping towards the floor or hiked up towards the ceiling.
