Did you know that doing planks help to improve your mood? Virtually every exercise has the potential to give you a mood boost, and planks are no exception. Planks are unique, however, in that they help stretch and ultimately relax muscles groups that often become stiff and tense from prolonged sitting. The tension release that planks provide is uplifting for your spirit.
There are two options for this one. You can do a pushup or a forearm plank. Both are beneficial!
TIPS: Keep your eyes focused out in front of you. Keep the body taut as you lower down. Really lift up your navel to prevent a sway in your lower back. If you need a gentler version - drop to your knees as you work through the entire exercise. Even on your knees you are working all the same muscles!
