In this video, we have special guest star Jenny de Miranda of BoHo Wellness here to break down step by step how to do a plank properly and efficiently to get all the benefits from the exercise.
The plank is a great exercise to practice if you’re just starting out with at home workouts and want an exercise you can do every day.
The 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 plank and perfecting your form will benefit not only your core, but also your legs, glutes, and arms.

Step 1: Start out in tabletop position with wrists stacked under shoulders and step your feet out behind you creating a straight line from your heels to your shoulders.
Step 2: Shift your weight forward into your hands, tuck your tailbone and pull in your ribs, engaging your core and keeping the spine long.
Step 3: Continue holding if you’re comfortable here or lower down to your forearms to alleviate wrist pain.
