How to Get Quick Abs – The Plank

Want to know how to get quick abs? Forget the crunches, sit-ups and start using workouts that will challenge your core muscles.

One such exercise is the plank.

This is a simple exercise but deceptively effective in building a strong core – which you need for strong abs .. For certain – the plank helps to develop strength in the core, shoulders, arms and glutes.

Below are 4 variations of the plank:

1. To do this, get into a push-up position with your arms in a 'L' shape position. Your body should be in a straight line from your head to your feet.

Then attempt to hold for as long as possible. Your goal should be to hold it for 2 minutes.

2. Another variation to the plank is to lift 1 leg up – now this will add more challenge to your core.

Try holding it for 30 seconds and longer.

3. Now if you want to step it up – why not try lifting 1 left leg up and 1 right arm up – and hold for as long as you can.

This will give your core a great workout!

4. Lastly, try the swiss ball variation – in a push up position but with your forearms on the ball, try to balance yourself without letting your body rolling out under you. Again hold for as long as possible!

Start now and get those abs you've always wanted – but remember – to always get your nutrition in order to reduce your body fat.

Now this is how to get quick abs!
