Planks are a big deal for a reason. They build muscles from the arms to the legs with a special emphasis on the core. Core strength is imperative for spinal and pelvic stability, proper posture and proper body mechanics. Unlike sit-ups and “6-pack ab” exercises, planks work the muscles deep within the stomach that matter most to your musculoskeletal health. This workout challenge includes 6 plank variations to be done 3 days a week for 30 days; tailor it to your fitness level by adjusting the duration of your plank holds.
