The forearm plank is one of the best moves to rev up your heart rate and tone your whole body!
Why we love the forearm plankWhen you're holding the plank pose, everything from your core and your chest to your back and shoulders to your thighs and your seat all must be actively helping you stabilize the position. Best of all, you only need to hold the pose for about 30 seconds to one minute to benefit from the results. Here are a few quick tips for your best planks ever:
- Start on the floor, resting on your parallel forearms and knees
- Step your feet out one at a time, coming into a plank position
- Contract your abs to prevent your booty from sticking up or sinking.Your spine should be parallel to the floor, with your abs pulling toward the ceiling
- Hold for 30 - 60 seconds
