Plank is a core strengthening abdominal exercise which requires you to maintain a particular push-up position for maximum possible amount of time.

How to do

Start with a push-up position with your body facing the ground. Put your weight on your forearms and your toes. This will force your abs to clench themselves and maintain your balance. Remember that your body should be straight and not leaning up or down. Don’t push your hips towards the ceiling or lean downwards towards the ground.
