Traditional Plank - How To Do The Perfect Plank

This is how to do the perfect forearm plank (easier). She makes it look simple? Meanwhile, this bent arm plank becomes just as challenging as any other as time goes on.

This is the perfect straight arm plank. Similar to push up formation except you just hold the position for the designated amount of seconds or minutes.

Plank w/ Knees Down VS Regular Hover Plank

These two videos show modified plank styles where your arms are half down as normal, but your knees are down to make it a little easier on you. 1/2 way through both videos shows the second plank options where the legs are straight and the feet on the toes like a traditional plank.

Side Plank Options
Side planking is much more challenging and fun. Here are some examples:

Side Plank w/ One Knee Down

Side Plank On Toes

There are so many different ways to plank from these main formats. You can lift arms and legs in rotation, open and close your legs like jumping jacks, reverse your body, use a ball, etc. However you choose to plank, just use correct form and stick with it for strength and toning.
