Feature: Your Health Hit!

“ Plankety Plank “ 

Planks are such a great exercise as you can do them anywhere, like me on my kitchen floor. You don’t need any equipment and they will strengthen your core and can help reduce back pain. If you are a postpartum then these can ease you back into exercise nicely. 

How to perform the plank: Place your forearms on the ground with the elbows directly below your shoulders, and arms parallel to the body at about shoulder-width distance. Clasp your hands together. Your body should be in a straight line from your head to feet. Brace your abs then lift yourself up onto your tip toes. now hold this position ( beginners you can start on your knees then aim from 10 seconds) Once you have held the plank for 90 seconds, its time to start making it more challenging by lifting alternate feet off the floor.
