How to plank:

  1. Get into a prone position on the floor, supporting your weight on your toes and your forearms. Your arms are bent and directly below the shoulder.
  2. Keep your body straight at all times, and hold this position as long as possible. To increase difficulty, an arm or leg can be raised.

  1. Thanks for sharing your tips for the best plank position. Incorrectly performing the plank can inhibit use of targeted muscles. On another note, we’ve created a website that brings together former and current athletes and provides a space for people to share their athletic triumphs and struggles. We’d love to hear how working out has influenced you (See the forums page). We also have a feature that allows athletes to see where there are others in your area (See the members and events page). Thank you so much for your consideration! Margaret
