The core of your body is your foundation and is what keeps you strong, flexible, and active. Planks help by strengthening the muscle groups of your core regions, thus boosting your overall body strength; especially you back muscles.
The major muscle groups of your core include the:
-External Obliques (Next to the abs and below the ribcage)
-Erector Spinae (Mid Back)
Doing Planks regularly helps build your body’s high level of functional fitness while also reducing muscle strain and back pain. Having more control of your core improves your balance and gives you better posture.
