Beginning Standing Plank Hold

2. Draw your navel toward your spine by engaging your abdominal muscles. Maintain a tight and straight torso, as well as a straight line from your ears to your toes with no drooping or bending. This is how the spine should be in a neutral position. Make sure your shoulders aren't sagging toward your ears. Your heels should be higher than your toes.
3. Hold this position for a total of ten seconds. Allow it to fall to the ground.
4. Work up to 30, 45, or 60 seconds over time.
Standing Plank Hold Movement
1. Stand with your spine straight and strong and your feet in a shoulder-width stance.
2. A cable machine will be to your right at chest level. Rotate your arms straight across the right side of your torso to allow you to clasp the handle with an interlocking grip.
3. Your shoulders should stay relaxed while you move your arms and extend them past your chest to the middle of your body.
4. Maintain the position for the desired amount of time.
