I started making planks part of my daily routine. It is a great strength builder – not only physically, but also mentally. When I get in a plank my mind becomes focused and calm, thus cultivating strength and control to my body. Here are some benefits/reasons why you should do a plank a day 🙂
1. Accessible and Convenient: You can do planks anywhere and anytime. All you need is yourself and a mat!
2. Strength: Planks are perfect to gain strength in the core, arms, shoulders and back, but did you know planks are also great for the lower body? Including lower back, buttocks, legs and ankles. This is a pose that works out and brings strength to the entire body.
