1 I Like Planks! on Tue May 18, 2010 12:08 pm

I like planks. Smile While the usual way to do a plank is on the floor, body supported at feet and elbows, I do them at an angle against the kitchen counter, my desk, or a sturdy table.

I do planks for the front abs (rectus abdominis) and for the sides (obliques).

Plus I do them not as isometrics holding the body rigid for 10 seconds to one minute, but as mini-crunches, with a contracting movement repeated 10-100 times.

Planks btw have helped my golf swing and balance and control while on the bicycle.
