I remember the first time I tried planking, I fell flat on my face. Now I can plank with ease….well not ease but I can do it (LOL). Planking is a great exercise for your tummy area. While planking challenges you to balance and stabilize areas of your body it forces your hip flexors, your obliques, and even your glutes to work as a team eventually sculpting that sexy beach body you’ve been wanting. As awesome as planking is, if not done correctly you can cause serious injury to yourself. Here are a few planking exercises you can implement in your workout routine that will strengthen your core.
