The Half Plank is a great exercise to practice if you’re just starting out with at home workouts or are new to planks. The half plank is an isometric exercise that improves core strength which will help with posture and overall stability. Being a compound exercise, learning how to do a half plank and perfecting your form will benefit not only your core, but also your legs, glutes, and arms.
