The pushup plank will help you tone your body and get a flatter stomach. You don’t have to always move around to burn fat. Contracting your body’s muscles will burn calories.
A good companion exercise to the pushup plank is the pushup.
Don’t focus on over-training the superficial abdominal muscles like the rectus abdominis (six pack abs). It would be like a thin crust of ice on top of liquid. You need a solid foundation (deep stabilizing core muscles) under your superficial abdominals for support and definition. This will also help you burn dangerous visceral fat.
The pushup plank is an isometric bodyweight exercise which helps you build strength and burn fat without moving much. They are great for building muscles, stabilizing muscles, building strength, improving power and burning fat. Isometric contractions can be described as a type of muscle contraction where your muscles develop tension without changing length. Isometric contractions cause most if not all of your muscles to work during an exercise.
How to Do the Pushup Plank
Get in the pushup position and balance on your toes while keeping your body in a straight line. Hold the plank position for the required count without moving. Keep your head in line with your torso and brace your torso (as if taking a punch to the gut).
Try the pushup plank exercise to challenge your body. You should always be concerned with improving your core strength. The pushup plank will help you progress with your core strength and tone your abs.
