In a nutshell:
Improved Core Strength
2 minutes of high plank every day can help improve your core strength.
Planking targets all your core muscles, including your erector spinae, transversus abdominis, rectus abdominis, lumbar multifidus, internal and external obliques.
These core muscles need to be strengthened because it will help in supporting other body functions, including:
Reducing back pain
Improving your balance, flexibility, and stability
Preventing your risk of falls and injuries
According to a study, it was acknowledged that core strength will be able to protect the spine from excessive force generation during sporting activities.
Improved Overall Health And Fitness
Improved overall health and fitness are the results of doing 2minute planks every day.
It targets various muscle groups, making them particularly effective at improving your overall fitness.
The regular plank targets your back and core muscles.
Others, like the side plank variation, target your butt, hips, and abdominal muscles.
Doing 2 minute planks every day can also rev up your metabolism.
With that being said, it does not rank high in the list of metabolism-boosting exercises.
You must incorporate exercises such as burpees and mountain climbers with planking for a much more enhanced metabolism.
Despite this, there is no denying that planking can slightly improve your metabolism.
Incorporating a 2-minute plank into your daily routine will help in improving your posture.
Many people are battling poor postures because of the nature of their jobs.
Some spend most of their time behind the desk, affecting how they position their back, shoulders, and neck.
In most cases, many of the people end up arching their back and having our shoulders in front.
Flexibility is one of the benefits you can get from planking regularly.
Planking for 2 minutes a day will expand and stretch all your posterior muscle groups, like your shoulders, shoulder blades, and collarbone, while also stretching your hamstrings, arches of your feet, and toes.
With a side plank added to your routine, you can also work on your oblique muscles.
This gives you further benefits when you hyper-extend your toes, a movement that is crucial for supporting your body’s weight.
Better mental health
Planking for 2 minutes a day has a specific effect on your nerves and makes it an excellent way to improve your overall mood.
How does planking do this?
Planking will stretch out muscle groups that contribute to stress and tension in your body.
Reduce back and spinal column injury
A 2 minute planking everyday allows you to build muscle while also making sure that you do not put too much pressure on your spine or hips.
According to the American Council on Exercise, doing planks regularly not only significantly reduces back pain.
Improved overall balance
Does this sound familiar? Try to stand straight on just one foot and hold that position for as long as you can.
Improve your balance with 2 minute side planks and planks with extensions everyday, and you will be able to boost your performance in every kind of sporting activity.
An upright position will help you make you feel stronger and it exudes confidence, helping you in many social situations that always come in handy.
