The plank exercise activates all the muscle groups in the abdominal and most of the upper/lower limb, making it the complete ab workout! The plank exercise requires a strong lumbo-pelvic stabilisation while in the plank position, which is key for achieving optimal stability through the core and back. The other benefits include better overall posture, increased overall flexibility especially through the hamstrings and lower limb and balance training.
Ideal execution and performance will allow good movement patterns with performance while also minimising the chance of poor technique, overloading or injury. Speak with one of our practitioners at Melbourne Osteohealth today about a personalised plan for you!
