If there is one thing I can say I “hate”, its planks. I seriously despise planks. Why are they so hard? Why do I feel like they never get easier? Having a baby killed my core; can I still use that excuse now that I have a 2.5 year old?! I personally believe that planks are so challenging because they are so effective:
- They engage all of your core muscle groups, in one little position.
- You’ll burn more calories that your traditional sit-up or crunch.
- You’ll improve your posture and balance.
- They can improve your overall mood! What! Planks stretch out muscle groups that contribute to stress and tension.
