14 Days Progressive Abs Challenge To Burn Belly Fat
6. Plank (40 seconds)
STEP 1: Lie face down on the floor, with your legs and arms extended.
STEP 2: Then bring your arms underneath your shoulders. Make sure that you are resting on a yoga mat, or a soft surface; this will prevent you from blistering your elbows.
STEP 3: Lift your body using only the power of your arms and feet. To do this, take a deep breath, curl your toes and raise your stomach from the floor.
Your back should be flat, and your hips, neck and shoulders should be all aligned.
STEP 4: Hold this position for about 40 seconds. Make sure that you are breathing normally the entire time. Focus on making your body relaxed rather than tensed. Feel free to stare down.
Besides your abdominal muscles, in this position you are engaging several other muscle groups, including:
- deltoids, which connects your arms to your shoulders;
- trapezius, which are the muscle group that connect your shoulder blades together;
- chest muscles also benefit from the plank position.
