WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF YOU START DOING PLANK EXERCISES EVERY DAY
There will be at least 7 changes
It has become possible to tighten your body in just 5 minutes a day. But you need to exercise on a daily basis. Let's figure out what results can be achieved if you do plank exercises every day for a month.
Don’t forget to make sure that you have no health-related contraindications for doing planks.
TONED BUTTOCKS AND ABS
When you do plank exercises, your core muscles become stronger, thus a correct posture and nice body type begin to form. Regular planks will tighten and strengthen your buttocks as well as rectus, oblique, and transverse abdominal muscles. Surprisingly, that just one exercise involves so many muscles. And you don’t even have to move while doing a plank.
How long can you keep your balance while standing on one leg in a swallow pose? Our abdominal muscles help us hold the balance, and these muscles are trained when we are doing a plank. With toned tummy muscles, it will be much easier for you to do any type of sports activities.
If you want to lose weight, plank exercises are just what you need. Regular planks allow burning more calories than standard press exercises do. If you devote even 10 minutes a day to planks, your metabolic processes will accelerate. So even at night, your body will continue to burn calories and, consequently, lose weight.
NICE SHOULDERS AND NECK
Strengthened abdominal muscles straighten and hold in the correct position your neck, shoulder girdle, back, and waist. As soon as you start doing a plank, your body posture will improve.
BACK PAIN WILL GO AWAY
You can cause discomfort your back if you sit incorrectly or lift heavy weights. Daily planks will strengthen your upper and lower body muscles, thus reducing the risk of back pain.
YOUR BODY WILL BECOME FLEXIBLE
Incredible as it may seem, planks help stretch all your ligaments and muscles without bending or twisting. To achieve this, you should add several variations to the plank. Try to do side, single arm, raised leg, and elbow planks. You can alternate these planks during your 5-minute workout (that will be enough for a start). Thus, the main muscles will be worked out, the flexibility of the entire body will increase, and you will be lighter on your feet.
YOU’LL BE IN A BETTER MOOD
Strengthened core muscles of the lower body improve both your appearance and emotional state. Strong abdominal muscles are the key to normal intra-abdominal pressure and, as a result, to the correct outflow of venous blood from the organs. This can significantly boost your energy. Sedentary work makes you tense and nervous. After a week of doing plank exercises, you’ll get rid of nervousness, irritability, and apathy.
Planks will be especially effective if you do them to nice music, use a timer, breathe correctly, and stay motivated.
