14 Day Plank Plan
Haven't been working out your abs but want to get things tighter and stronger even if you have back pain or just not sure where to start? Here's how to do it.
Abs are one of those things we all want, but most of us HATE working out. Something most people don't know is that you actually have 3 different sets of ab muscles all with different functions. We're going to look at the most basic (and most important) of the 3 systems, the stabilization system.
This is the part of the core that connect directly to the spine and need to be worked before moving on to what's considered more traditional ab exercises like reverse crunches and bench in-and-outs. Planks are one of the best exercises you can do for your core as it targets the stabilizers, continually contracts the muscles during the exercise which helps with toning and places hardly any stress on your joints. If you're new to working out your core here's a 14-day program to jump-start those abs from MyFitnessPal.
If you have any questions on how to do the exercises let me know and I'll be happy to help. This shouldn't take you more than 3-10 minutes per day and in 2 weeks you'll be surprised how much easier just daily movements become and how much stronger your mid-section has become!
