How to Do Plank Crunches

The Plank Crunches should begin with good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop the Plank Crunches.

Beginning

2. To keep your body in a straight plank-like shape side on, make it as rigid as possible from your feet to your head.

3. Tensing your quads to elevate your knee caps up your thighs, squeezing your glutes together, bracing your core, and bringing your belly button up away from the floor while pressing down into the floor with your elbows are all ways to accomplish this.
