No, I'm not talking about the internet fad from 2010. I'm talking about the prone static hold done from toes and the elbows or hands. It's gotten a bad rap from over usage in bootcamps and world record attempts. The plank is actually an extremely valuable exercise for teaching proper trunk and scapular position, especially when done from the hands. We're throwing it in opposite some bench press, so lock in that midline and remember to breathe!
