Whether you're trying to get those cut V shaped abs or just trying to tighten up the tummy, few ab exercises compare to Ab Planks! Relying solely on bodyweight, gravity, and well, physics... you don't need gym gloves, weights or equipment and can do them anywhere at any time! Just like with any exercise it's only effective if you're doing it properly, so here are some tips for Ab Planks Proper Form.
Can you build muscle with Ab Planks? Yes. Bodyweight exercises can be just as effective at building muscle as weight training exercises. If you feel like you're not getting the most out of your abs workout, the answer isn't always to add more weight and resistance. Remember, to build muscle you need to constantly be challenging it with not only resistance, but variation. You might be able to do a crap load of knees to elbows, but peter out after just a couple sets of ab planks.
