Doing plank workout 2 minutes every day will not just help flatten your tummy. It will also strengthen your core and tone your abs. Check out our top plank exercises and burn those calories around your belly!
1. Forearm Side Plank with Crunch
Lie on your right side propped up on your right elbow and forearm, shoulders stacked over your elbow, legs stacked on top of each other, and place your left fingertips behind your left ear. Raise your hips so that your body forms a straight line from head to heels. This is the starting position. Keeping your core braced, crunch your abs and bring your left elbow and knee together. Return to the starting position. Do equal reps on both sides.
2. Plank with cross-body tap
Lift the left foot slightly off the floor. Bring the left knee in to kiss the right triceps. Return to plank. Repeat, bringing the right knee to the left triceps. It’s OK if the knee doesn’t make it all the way in to touch the triceps! Just twist as deeply as you can, without lifting your hips to shorten the distance. Aim to do 2 sets of 12 reps on each side.
3. SIDE PLANK LEG RAISE
First, get into the standard side plank position. Once you’re settled, lift the top leg with your knee straight. Hold that position for as long as possible, with your leg as high as possible.
Come down and switch sides.
