A basic core strengthening routine begins with the plank, an exercise that actively engages all of the major core muscles. But, how about a plank against the wall?

Day 4 Plank Against the Wall

  • The plank is one of the best and most effective exercises for a flat, toned stomach because it works all the muscles in your core, including the rectus abdominus , transverse abdominus, internal and external obliques, hips, and back.

How to:

  1. To enter the pose, walk your feet up the wall and prop up your upper body on your hands. Keep your knees rigid and abdominal muscles taut. Do not allow your hips to drop or your upper back to sink between your shoulder blades.

  2. As you hold the plank, focus on keeping your body stiff and straight. Not ready to hold for a minute? Start with 15 seconds and eventually, work up to holding the position for one minute while inhaling and exhaling slowly.
