List of Plank Exercises
This page provides instructions for a wide variety of plank exercises. Plank exercises help to improve core strength. In turn, this helps a martial artist's punching power and kicking power. Plank exercises generally work on abs, obliques and/or lower back muscles. However, more advanced planks can also work on shoulder muscles, leg muscles, etc.
All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized. If you have had an injury or are in pain, please see a doctor before starting any stretching or exercise program. For additional exercises (i.e. crunch variations), please visit the main Core Exercises section.
