A lot of men and women wish to lose belly fat. The Plank is definitely one of the best exercises for working out your abs, as they don’t put undue pressure on your back and also work your shoulders. A single 2 minute session of plank burns around 30-40 calories. In this video, celebrity trainer Jeff Cavaliere shows us the different variations we can do with planks that will engage the core even more. For eg., Cavaliere demonstrates how narrowing the distance between your arms and legs will make the exercise far more difficult. Similarly, putting your feet on a different platform – like a bench – can also make the workout more intense.
One killer variation of the plank shown in this video involves you holding a weight plate in front of you, so that the distance between your arms is not much and they are elevated. Trying these different variations will make your core stronger, and also add some excitement if you are bored of doing the standard plank. Read about some foods that can help burn belly fat.
