    I love how all my recommended videos are “Why planking is bad”, “why I don’t use planking”, “why I don’t include planks in my workouts” ?

  4. Smokey Mitchell

    Who quotes the navy times? Aka the Army times or Garrett news Corps. It’s not a government source or pier reviewed. It’s also known as the Naval inquirer

  9. Thierry Lasserre

    30 minutes plank I can barely do 1 minute ??

  10. rebels prophet

    How is planking done then? Standing on the elbows in a strain?

  11. Rachan Sai

    If we add weights on body to efficiently work on planks so that without weights we can do longer planks. And adding weights is wrong or right?

  12. André Erland

    This is bullshit lol

  13. Zync z

    Like if u watched this video during a plank

  14. nonsolojazz707

    Planking doesn’t help in spot fat reduction, infact nothing apart from liposuction does

    1. WaysAndHow

      Not true, but good luck to you.

  15. Steven Bergman

    I thought it was a good commercial……However the flirty model at the end totally destroyed your credibility.

  16. Mafia01

    Planking is a Good way to get a Sixpack!!

    1. Mafia01

      Do Sit-Ups top everyday 50 Times i got a Sixpack in 4weeks or maybe less

    2. PL Basketball 2

      Mafia01 are planks the only best abs workout?

  17. Panther132014

    Planks are good unless you’re a non endurance athlete, and please stop thinking “toning” is a thing lol

  18. Pussy Destroyer

    A normal plank can help you lose weight, but a weighted plank can give strength to your abs…

  19. Health & Beauty 365

    I tried, Plank is really good for our health

  20. Girly Man Wrestling Fan

    So then how long and how often should one do it? And will it work for men too tho? You didn’t provide much information at all.

    1. Girly Man Wrestling Fan

      That did. Greatly!

    2. WaysAndHow

      Well, girly man, start with 5 times a week. Do 30 seconds rep, rest for 20 seconds, and repeat 3 times. So 90 seconds to 120 seconds will be an ideal for a beginner. When you’re strong enough, you can extend your reps to 60 seconds. I hope that helps.

  21. Sobeye Freeman

    Thanks for sharing. The information has motivated me to do planks more frequently.

  22. Kristopher Burt

    Everyday tasks…..masterbation has become more easier, they are right

  23. Piano Man42

    Is planking the same as a push up? Can anyone comment?

    1. Hence Myname

      Piano Man42
      No, it’s not the same. Push ups engages more on your triceps and pectoral muscles. While planks engages more on your core and front deltoid which is the front shoulder.

    2. Kristopher Burt

      Piano Man42, yes but without the push. You just hold yourself up/flat for an extended period of time.

  24. Vignesh Chand

    Please for the love of god! stop saying it burns fat.. Fat burn happens when you hit caloric deficit, period. Not planks, not crunches or anything.. One valid point it does strengths the core!

    My record for the plank is 8 min. How Much is yours?

    1. tpcs

      Damn, nice. Mine is maybe 100 seconds . I have much work to do. 😀

  29. Saboor Khan

    But what was the last type of planking exercise the hottie was doing!???

  30. Rose Noah

    I’ve been doing a plank daily for around 4 weeks now (I’m literally the most unathletic person you’ll meet). I only started doing it because I’m getting graded on it in P.E. class but I’ll definitely continue planking! In the beginning I couldn’t do more than 30 seconds without almost dying, now 3 minutes seems easy! So don’t get discouraged if you can’t hold it for very long in the beginning!

    1. Padme Skywalker

      Are there visible results Rose? Does it really make your stomach flat. I wanna try this too

    2. WaysAndHow

      Good for you, Rose.

  31. spiegel

    I don’t feel I’m getting anything out of planking.

    1. WaysAndHow

      Okay, add other cardio exercises to your daily routine.

  32. Blaze Lord

    I feel so bad about my belly does anybody have a way I can get rid of that shit. I have been doing sit-ups for forever now and it seems to be doing nothing. Help. My belly also isn’t that bad it’s just still there and I guess it sucks but still help!

    1. TheEmoOne

      Blaze Lord make sure you eat healthy too.

  33. Tim Leon

    In my opinion… planking is the lazy way to train midsection.

  34. Turbo Trickster

  39. Reaper

    I plank 90 seconds everyday and do 50 sit ups before bed.

  40. Carlo Kop

    Doing the same exercise every day isn’t good. If you don’t take enough rest you will get over-trained. Best to do this no more than every other day and skip if you still have muscle pain.

  41. William Close

    We do planks after we lift weights. And that shit hurts. We have to last 5 minutes. And that is painful in your arms

  42. ADMI official

    Just do planche or maybe two-three planche pushups, then you are on the good way???

  44. Amanda

    *Awesome. Learn how I lost 15 pounds in my channel*

  45. Alex Cowell

    Don’t bother planking, it engages the muscle 10% of the amount that leg lifts and various other exercises like weighted crunches or incline crunches, also it does not work the obliques and does not burn anywhere near as many calories as various other exercises that also engage more muscles and more so. Doing a plank a day will not change a thing, you will need a full body routine that you do consistently (roughly 3-4 times a week) this is what will really help you burn fat as your pushing your body further and not just relying on one exercise to help burn fat, so when your abs give out you can move onto something like pull-ups which will also burn fat and barely engage the core so you can be active for longer and achieve results.

  46. Pope Sweet Jesus

    Funny how the next video says to stop doing this exercise cause it’s the worst

  47. ImRagu

    trying to attract men I see

    Are you kidding? Why are using thin people only?

    1. Deez Nuyz

      I’d love to see a 200lb+ person try doing this (Not 200lb of pure muscle, because they can). That and it helps the narrator’s point on how it helps core strength.

    2. Holly O.

    Par day how much time doing this exercise to lose weight fast???

  58. Henry Jones Jr.

    You can’t target where fat is lost. The reason the links are made between planking and fat loss around the stomach area is because that is the first place where fat is deposited; and it is the first place where it will be burnt off too, regardless of the exercise.

    Performing too many ab/core exercises can actually make you appear fatter than you are, because the muscles push the fat away from your body. 

    It’s better to do something like pull/chin ups, where the core is exercised isometrically and the rest of your upper body also has a good workout too.

  59. Muhammad Sharjeel Shakoor

    Hi, I love your channel when I wacth this video and Im going to Subscribe your channel✌

    1. WaysAndHow

      Thank you, Muhammad.

    its good but you can do better excersizes and different movements in the planking positions

    Plank is for pussies

  62. David Each yet

    I’m 61 yrs old, 35 lbs over weight, I did my first plank – made it to 40 seconds. I’m going to start doing 1 plank everyday. Good info, thanks

  63. Miamaar Mimi

    But I’ve heard that you shouldn’t work out every day, because muscles need rest. Is that true? Is it enough to do this 3 times a week?

  64. Gary Nicholas

    This is why the fitness industry is so f*cked up . Never heard so much BS. God help us

    1. David Rakoczy

      stop spreading wrong information with your cardio stuff..

    2. Hence Myname

      Gary Nicholas
      You’re looking at the wrong fitness industry mate. Any real fitness industry will tell you that plank is just strengthening your core and shoulders. Cardio is the way to go to remove that body fat.

  65. Graham Straughair

    Lot of generic rubbish with nothing of note.

  66. Lawrence Morris

    remember guys when they compare it to crunches they are fake. if this video was serious, they would compare it to SQUATS. but instead they wanted to support static planks and i got to say freak you.
    You shouldnt be using youtube videos anyway for learning how to work out.

  76. Mctod59

    You can not target fat in any area. When you plank you are still. You must burn less fat planking than watching this video.

  77. captainrobots

    If you do crunches dont put hands behind head hug yourself lightly but strong enough that your shoulders that it won’t slide off.

  78. Joey's Chin Licker

    Watch at 1.5x speed. Nvm 2x speed is perfecr

  79. Edward Lei

    People still believe this shit? The best and fast way to lose belly fat is through water fasting!

  80. Themi

    If you’re looking to lose stomach fat, calorie deficit is the way to go. You CANNOT target fat on one specific part of your body. You have to lose weight entirely. If you’re looking for core strength or a six pack; planks are bullshit. Weighted ab training is your way to go.


    What’s up with the girl in the end?? ???

  88. Metin Turgut

    There is no such thing as local fat burning. The fat surrounding a muscle group doesn’t just burn away when that muscle group contracts. Those muscle contractions, if they continue for a period of time with enough intensity or volume, will only lead to hypertrophy, meaning that muscle group will be repaired to be stronger and bigger(when a caloric surplus is provided). Best way to get rid of fat is a calorie restricted diet. Combined with weight training, your body’s energy consumption will be so high (lots of calories are needed for muscle repairs) your body will start to lose fat. Also, your body is programmed to preserve muscle and use just fat to supply energy when there is enough stress in the muscles (weight training) since body determines you need those muscles. Instantaneous fat burn happens only during cardio and even then it isn’t burnt locally. It is used as energy source since glycogen stores in the muscles cannot supply the body with energy while your heart rate is elevated for a period of time. So you switch to aerobic mode (burning fat with oxygen). But even the most intense cardio sessions can only burn 700 kcal in an hour. So doing cardio to burn fat isn’t really the wisest decision. You should rather do cardio for its cardiovascular and other health benefits and fat burning should come at the side as a small extra benefit. So in short, plank or any kind of resistance training won’t burn the fat instantaneously and you won’t be able to lose fat without a caloric deficit. Basic formula to lose fat: caloric deficit + weight training + cardio = leaner and healthier body. Here, i wrote everything you need to know to hit the gym.

    1. Metin Turgut

      That’s what i did man and it worked pretty good 🙂 Lost 14 kgs and all of it was fat.

    2. Steven R

      Metin Turgut I agree that’s why you do a clean bulk calorie restricted diet while lifting will burn fat

  89. K2H777

    i do plank morning and evening daily for 60’s sconds

  90. Destructor 2000

    I already do planking….. how did I get here?

  91. Gavin Rossdale

    Planking has zero effect on fat. Intermitant fasting. Weight training. Does.

  92. Olive

    I can’t get down on the floor so I do my plank with my forearms on the kitchen counter and my feet about two feet out from the counter.  My body is still  in a straight line and I think it works pretty well.

  93. Jan Cerny

    I love the phrase, “include planking in your daily workout routine…” If you do a long set of planks, you won’t want to move again for a while–planks are a lot harder than they look, if you’ve never tried one.

  94. Stacy Hartman

    Its called pushups

  95. runnerisfree

    “Crunches lead to back pain” then shows people doing incorrect form as apposed to proper crunches

  101. Samuel Raymond

    Planking with motion is better you will feel it more. Starting from the plankig position then pushing your but up in the air while tightening your abs.

  102. Surinder Kaur

    Wow ..I have been doing crunches daily and planks alternatively .. I m Gona reverse it now ?

  103. Frieza Golden

    Will it engage psoas?

  104. darryl dempsey

    You can Not target an area for fat loss through exercise!. You can increase your capacity to burn fat, but you still require a calorie deficit.

  105. So maney

    I heard Planking can make you go blind ?

  106. Paul Charles Morris

    I can’t do the plank. I get so bored!

  107. Alpha Potato

    Would have been better without all the porn. I wanted to show my husband why planks would be a good work-out, but all he is going to remember is all the naked women. Sheeze, I will look for something more professionally done. Thumbs down.

  108. Ahmet Alici

    There is one thing I dont understand. There is a rule, that muscles need about 48 hours to get bigger. But in this video tell us, that we can plank everyday. What is true or best. Enyone please help 😀

  110. Sara Berhane

    I broke my back ???????????

  111. jordan19862000

    No, there is no such thing as “spot reduction” for body fat. Lowering body fat comes from being in a caloric deficit. Lean muscle mass does help increase metabolism, which makes a caloric deficit easier to attain, but one cannot target areas to reduce fat there. This is a myth!

  112. Calvin DiCaprio

    I don’t want my metabolism to speed up tho I don’t even gain any weight even if I sleep and eat like a pig

    Title is automatically mis leading, or mis informational, because you CANNOT spot fat reduce. Meaning, when you burn calories your entire body loses fat, you can’t burn fat in just your love handles or arms or feet targeted

  126. Maxi G_MLG

    The video says to do planks in your daily workout but the video right below it is an athlean x video with says why I hate planking and you should too…what do I do

  127. dor

    doing this every day is a waste of time, and is not going to make you stronger.

    1. Dark Genie

      dor actually that makes more sense. Thanks for the explanation.

    2. dor

      Dark Genie
      yes but im right, and here is the explanation, when you do a plank you force your body to produce a certain amount of force in order to keep you stable, it doesnt matter how long you do it for it still requires the same amount of strength because the weight that you have to stabilize doesnt change, the only thing that happens is that you get tired, and getting tired doesnt mean you get stronger, it just makes you tired, what makes you stronger is lifting heavier weight, which due to the mechanical nature of this exercise you cannot do efficiently over time… if you are looking for an efficient exercise that makes your spine stabilizing muscles strong, do the press.

    3. Dark Genie

      dor anyone could say anything on the internet

    4. dor

      Dark Genie im actually a trainer who trains people instead of wasting their time

    5. Dark Genie

      dor you’re probably a jealous fatass

  128. Roy Rogers

    What a piece of shit video! Doesnt even show you how to do a plank. Fake!

    This is so true planks have really been a blessing to me

  130. Johnnie James

    Does anyone know if this PLANKING stuff actually has any real benefits in shaping the stomach and back as suggested by this video?

    1. sschat

      well, not sure, but every where i go, they ADD it to the complete routine. As a pure stand alone exersice, it will have less effect on the ‘flattening’ of the stomach…

    but how long does each plank need to be?

  172. Joe Atwork

    I’m nearly 70. I started having back problem over 40 years ago. Once I found out about planks, I stopped having backaches. Once your core is tightened, 2 minutes a day keeps you shape. 4-6 sets of 1 minute planks will get you looking good.

  173. raju penchala

    Good msg sir

  174. Aidan Lisney

    You cannot spot reduce fat. In fact, doing abdominal exercises can temporarily cause the area to swell, making it appear larger. Any reduction in fat comes from the same thing it always has: diet. Less calories in and more calories burned. But even then the fat comes off at random. The studies that suggest that you can spot reduce show that actual amount of fat burned in a certain area is negligible.

  175. Victor Norman

    There are LOTS of superior ways to improve “core” strength than with the plank. Dynamic movements are superior in increasing strength, function and hyperthrophy (muscle growth), if better results are what you desire, you should definetly consider replacing the sub-par plank exercise with other exercises.

    Everything or anything can injure you’r back, but the truth is rather that will probably not injure your back doing exercises. The risk of injury is more connected to the lack of exercises/movement. Situps, although according to me a seldom useful exercise when compared to others are NOT dangerous.

    As for enhancing posture, this is just plain stupid. Posture comes more from awareness of posture, not mechanical weaknesses throughout the body. Even if the main problem with posture would stem from mechanical weaknesses the plank would stilld be a poor choice since the form is isometric (static) and very rigid. You also won’t engage the muscles of the upper back as heavily as the video claims, if this is you’r goal you’r time would be instensly more well spent performing high rowing motions, an example (not necessarily the best) would be face pulls.

    Any movement or exercise will boost you’r metabolism, you will burn more energy while blinking
    than while not blinking. If fat burning is you’r main goal you’r time would be better spent just walking, or progression of walking -> running. In case either of these are painful you could try swimming/cycling/rowing, almost any activity will do. There is NOTHING special about the plank, it’s an inferior exercise in a LOT of ways. And for the last goddamned time, there is no such thing as focused fat burning in certain areas.

    This video is useless, worse even, it makes people less knowledgeable about training and movements. Staahp, just staahp..

    Cortisol and Insulin are the 2 main hormones which is responsible for the fat stomach section. I don’t care if you do 1000 minutes of plank, if you are not influencing these hormoens in any way (which is through mostly proper diet) you won’t tap in to fat burning. A lot of people here who comment here says you “can’t spot reduce fat” you actually can but not by exercising the abdominal are, but through managing the hormones in the body, because they are the reason you store the fat in the belly in the first place.The reason the hormones store the fat in the belly especially, is to protect the body of starvation and to protect the vital organs. This is basic physiology and FACTS. Source: Arhtur guyton textbook of medical physiology which is the most used book in the world by medical schools, Arthur Guyton’s research contributions, which include more than 600 papers and 40 books, are legendary and place him among the greatest physiologists in history and Ciba Collection Volume 4 Endocrine System written by Frank n netter which is of one of the most influential doctors of the past century.

      On the side plant try keeping one of your legs up at the same time… Also exercising is going to hurt a lot at the start but you need to push through the pain to get better.

  184. XieXie ThankYou

    This video is true. It is not saying it will spot reduce, but make your belly flatter. It makes it flatter because you make many abdominal muscles work and become tighter instead of loose. So when you do this, it does make your tummy flatter. But you still have to reduce fat levels by having a good healthy intake of food and zero to low sugars and little fats and exercise to become lean.

    Planking is a good exercise added in to a complete stomach routine. “warm-up” to get into the actual workout. Its all beneficial to ultra marathon training.. Its easy to pick things apart, but if it gets people off the couch and put the snacks down, its still a positive.

    This certainly sounds good.  However, from dire experience I have learned that just because something is good for a verry fit 20-something to do doesn’t mean it’s a good idea for me to do.  While I’m very fit for my age I’m older than that kid’s father and our bodies are verry different.  So be careful with the “great exercise for everyone everywhere” hubris because it ain’t necessarily so.

    The 50 calories a day for each pound is wrong. It is 7-10 calories. If it was 50 calories and you added 50 pounds of muscle. You would be burning 2500 calories a day just from the muscles being there. 7-10 calories is still a benefit and the more muscle you have the more you need in order to maintain it.

    1. Jay Hewlett

      I’d say most of the guys who criticize planks have a lot of upper body strength so they don’t benefit as much. If you are going for a lean and strong slim body they are great. I don’t want to be huge because then i need to struggle to reduce my meal portions later in life when metabolism is too hard to control. That is why I prefer to stick to exercises like this that don’t require tons of carbs or calories for me to maximize my results.

I have shoulder injuries and back problems and this is the only thing that I can do without screwing myself up and it works so well! I love it. It shaped my body almost immediately. I get a full body workout and it’s great bc I don’t like cardio exercise or goofy exercise moves at all. I like to run and walk and jump rope. And plank. I used to worship bicycle kicks and captain chair but the planks blew these out the water for me. This and the fundamentals yoga is the true way to exercise your body as far as walking and running. Your body responds to these exercises mines doesn’t respond to all that other goofy stuff bc I don’t feel it. If it’s Dances I like and enjoying that’s different.

    It’s true that different work outs isolate certain muscles but you can not and I repeat can not isolate an area for fat loss. Where you lose fat from depends on your genetics.

  288. nelsonta00

    If you really want to get in shape, especially around the belly, the first thing you focus on is your diet. Eat more Veggies and less fastfood, pre-packaged food, and snacks (because they are usually processed food). Replace sugar with freshly blended fruit/veggie juice. I highly recommend vietnamese food. Avoid wheat. You can literally scarf on these and still lose weight because of how fast veggies/fruits burn, but find a happy balance. Burger patties and Chipotle burritos are very unhealthy. Staying in shape as you get older requires a lot of dedication. Exercise can only get you so far.

    After I get off work from building houses/remodeling, I buy my own groceries and cook, so there is really no excuse for pencil pushers. It is cheaper to cook, you get the exact flavoring you want, and you will feel less groggy after meal. I cheat sometimes myself; occasionally when I’m too tired I will go to Charles Jr but I keep that minimal to once or maybe twice every week or so.

    The whole objective to what I said is to consume lesser calories/fat/carbs/sugar/wheat (this includes sweet-n-low) that are the biggest culprit in weight gain and diabetes. You will use the bathroom a lot more eating healthy, but that is because they are easier to process and doesn’t clog up your body’s system. The upside to eating healthy is that it is easier to convert the food you ate into muscle.

    I’m literally tired of ppl asking me how to get in shape (its not like you never had P.E. classes before) as they are munching on nachos and chugging cola. It is actually harder to shed body fat with exercise when you’re eating things that stick in your body system. Healthy food eliminates waste fast while retains the nutrients.

    Last thing to note: Beef jerk is super unhealthy

    This Happens to Your Stomach Fat When You Plank: *NOTHING*
    You can _not_ spot reduce fat. Planks are great for strengthening core muscles, which will make you less susceptible to injury, potentially enabling you to do more intense exercises that can burn more Calories. But planks are not Calorie intensive exercises, and therefore have little affect on overall fat reduction, and absolutely nothing to do with stomach fat reduction, because _you can not spot reduce fat!_

  357. venas m

    no. planks are a static movement, whereas crunches are dynamic and build muscular mass, lean or otherwise depending on ur weight and reps. as for crunches it’s not bad for back, it precisely was chosen over situps to avoid back (injury) IF your back hurts (depends on your body type). situps work the entire group of abs as well. if crunches hurt your abs, as well as situps, you can always do leg raises. i call BS. (not hating on planks, they are a good core exercise but entirely different from the whole concept of flexion and contraction concept. i doubt it flattens your stomach.good diet accounts for 60-80% of your weight. you want 6 packs, or do you want super lean abs with strength and health behind them you need that extra ROM (range of motion) of flex to contract, ideally 3x – 5x. you don’t need a million exercises for your abs either, pick just one that suits you (situps, crunches, v ups, wtv, crunch downs using weights) and do anywhwre from 12-20 x3, 3x a week, even 2x a week is enough.

  358. Mr. Orange

    WaysAndHow You may want to stop giving out “advice”, seeing as you’re horribly misinformed. Fat cells exist in the form known as triglycerides. Muscle cells cannot directly use triglycerides as fuel. Fat must be broken down into glycerol and free fatty acids which then enter the bloodstream. Therefore, fat used as fuel during exercise can, and absolutely does, come from anywhere in the body. The “spot reduction” you’re still trying to push for some reason has been studied and disproven for around 50 years. There is no mystery to fat loss. You eat and exercise to the point where you are consistently consuming less calories than you are burning.

    1. Mr. Orange

      WaysAndHow Your own quotes: “Sorry, Frater, but you have no clue what you’re talking about.” “Yes, you can, specifically around your belly.” So when someone comes along with actual facts, you want to talk about the video? As others have claimed, “This Happens to Your Stomach Fat When You Plank” is neither directly addressed in the video or remotely accurate. A catchy title and all female cast doesn’t make a useful exercise video. You’ve got the right workout in the plank, but the wrong approach to explain why.

    2. WaysAndHow

      Mr. Orange, could you tell me exactly where in the video you saw, or hear about “spot reduction?”

    This does not work your stomach for crying out loud! It’s the abdominal muscles. You cannot spot reduce fat!. CRunches will tighten up your midsection better than any other exercise and done properly will not harm your back.

    2: Eat healthy
    3: Exercise regularly (Compound, Cardio and weights) 4 times a week or so.

  374. Putraenus Alivius

    Planks make your abdomen flatter because it works the transverse abdominis—a muscle that goes around your abdomen, sort of like a corset. You can also train them with stomach vacuums as the great bodybuilders during the 80s do. It’s not because they can burn a ton of fat. It’s diet > lifting > cardio. Cardio is better than not exercising at all, lifting is better than cardio, and diet trumps them all.

  379. J Williams

    Don’t fall for this foolishness. Sure planking is good, but to actually lose weight you have to diet and exercise regularly. Moreover, belly fat does not exist. You cant just lose belly fat, but you have to lose fat from the whole body. This is why you won’t have a fat face with a skinny body, or vice versa.

    1. WaysAndHow

      J Williams, the video talked about a lot of things that plank can do for you, and losing weight is just a little part of the video.

  380. Bananna Phone

    Few corrections:
    – Can’t target fat loss to your stomach
    – “Tone” isn’t a thing, it either losing fat or building muscle
    – It targets 3 muscle groups, core, lower back, and shoulders
    – “Activated” is not the same as “Engaged” your whole core is activated, but not all of it is engaged, same with shoulders, your anterior delt is engaged while the delt is activated
    – Your upper back muscles are used for pulling, planking is an isometric exercise that will do very little to nothing for your back
    – If you want to “increase calories burned throughout the day” planking won’t do that alone because it is not a high intensity exercise
    – Honestly, lifting weights with proper form will build your core a significant amount but planks are good if you don’t go to the gym

    I can’t believe you’re trying to argue that spot reduction exists in the comments. Please don’t give out advice. Believing in spot reduction is Stone Age thinking at this point. The closest thing to targeting fat is an alpha-2 inhibitor for inhibiting the alpha-2 receptors in the stubborn fat areas, that’s it.

  397. Mur R

    I have never done planks. I have excellent abs. I don’t see how this can be effective for abs. You are not concentricly flexing and contracting the abs; ; the spine remains neutral; not shortening the muscle; not isolating the abs; not building the abdominal muscles.

    1. Mur R

      That would be like trying to build biceps, without bending your arm. Although, I never do “sit ups” either. They focus more on hip flexors than abs. I feel that you need to round your back, shortening the abdominal muscles, to target the abs

    2. Mur R

      Yes. To actually build the muscle, the muscle needs to be shortened…flexed…contracted. Preferably, using resistance. Especially to develop deep cuts in the abs.

    3. WaysAndHow

      Not building the abdominal muscles, really, Mur R?

    Almost all these reasons were just reasons why you should exercise, not why specifically planks. Planks are a very good ab workout for beginners, but they are not the be all end all that this video would have us believe.

    1. iceberg265

      Its a great workout for beginners, its an OK workout for intermediates, its too easy to be a good workout for anyone who has been training for a while.

      No, nobody suggests that, but we all can agree that plank is a good ab workout.

  401. Jay Bell

    Flatting the stomach? You really have zero comprehension of how fat burning works. You cannot spot-burn fat. This has been known for decades.

    1. Jay Bell

      It said that planks can flatten the stomach, which they cannot and do not. That statement is giving the false impression that it’s possible to burn fat around the stomach from planks.

    2. WaysAndHow

      Jay Bell, where, in the video did you hear or see spot-burn fat? The video talked about six tips, and most of them have nothing to do with burning fat, did you actually watch the video?

    There is NO spot reduction.
    50 calories is NOTHING>

    Same effort and TIME (we all have works) spent on intervals or heavy lifting is much much more fat-burning.

    Dont get me wrong – planks are great. I always condemn crunches and situps and to me NO ONE should do EVEN A SINGLE ONE IN HIS LIFE!

    But planks are the best tool for CORE STRENGTHENING, not aestetics!
    They wont HURT aestetics, but they are NOT the most optimal or effective choice given competition from other choices.

    Again — strengthening the ability to stay in certain pose, which is crutial to not fucking your back – yes.

    Burning fat on belly? Fuck no.
