We know how hard it is to find time to go to the gym on a regular basis. Bright Side has found for you one exercise that will help you to slim down, tone up your muscles, and get healthier in just 4 minutes a day.

The right way to do a plank

To make the most of your short workout, assume the correct position.

  • Your body should be in a straight line from head to heels. Watch your glutes: they should not dip or bulge.
  • Your elbows should be bent at a 90-degree angle. Put your weight on your forearms and toes.
  • Bringing your feet closer together will allow your abs to engage more. Adjust the space between your feet to the point where it's comfortable, but it should not be too wide.
  • Breathe slowly and rhythmically. The proper breathing technique will help you hold a plank longer and improve the results.
