Before you head off - This is what a perfect plank looks like:
The prupose of a plank:
The purpose of planking is to train all muscles that support the spine, as well as your pelvis. It is a total-body exercise with emphasis on the core.
How to plank:
Place your hands on the ground shoulder width apart, the hands should be directly underneath the shoulders. The body is in a straight line, with the feet at shoulder width. Hold for 30-60 seconds.
What else to pay attention too:
The neck is in line with the spine, the shoulders are back and low (shoulder blades are flat at the top of the back), the elbows unlocked, the hips are down, and the bellybutton in. Don't forget to breath! ;)
