but are you doing them correctly?
I have seen all kinds of planks out there and I will be honest, some of them are less than desirable and leave me cringing, concerned for that person's low back and core. The purpose of a plank is to strengthen the core but at what cost? Are you compromising your shoulders, low back, and core to stay in the position for a time that is unnecessary?
So today I wanted to share a few things you should be looking for when you are doing plank and one of them is one that I struggle with myself.
Let me know if you notice you do any of these as well and promise me you will practice moving through your plank a little differently in the future so that you aren't hurting yourself in the process.
