HOW TO DO A PLANK PROPERLY?
To do this exercise properly, it is quite important to take the right position. First, you need to make sure your hands are placed in the approved manner and elbows are straight under the shoulders to make certain right weight dissemination.
Then the spine rests straight and you need to avert turning and unnecessary pressure on the neck as well as back and you need to keep your legs to some extent away from each other.
However, your thighs should touch each other and you need to regulate the distance between the legs as required.
Also, your breathing should be slow, and your body should be more stress-free.
