This week's WOW is a series of plank variations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Easy peasy right?!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One round is only 5 minutes, but don't let that fool you - it's sure to be a challenge! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Need an extra challenge? Add another round or two 👊🏻
A strong core doesn't just look good; it benefits your health in a number of ways. ✍🏻Here are 3 reasons to do an abs workout today: .
- It improves your #balance and stability .
- Reduces lower back pain .
- Helps reduce your #waistline
The most important thing is for you to be aware of your core. What I usually do is I always try to contract my #abdominal muscles as often as I can during the day. .
🔶 Try this 👉🏻 the next time you get up from your desk at work to go to the restroom or to the copier, contract your core #muscles while you walk. Do this often and you’ll start doing it naturally. Once you activate your core muscles, it’ll be much easier to engage them in other exercises. 💪🏻 Another tip to activate the core muscle is to do planks. .
🔸Try doing a plank everyday for one week. Start off with 30 seconds then go up to a minute. I do planks everyday and have noticed a drastic change in the way my core functions and the definition in my abs. Best of all you don’t need a gym membership to do core workouts! Let me know what core workouts you like to do and what’s worked best for you. 🥰
