I recently nearly died from pneumonia, and lost a ton of weight, and 8 inches from my waist. I decided to do everything I could to get healthier, and one of my exercise routines is plank. I never knew there were so many different types. I've done nine different plank exercises to date, and am looking forward to doing the most difficult ones.

I've been doing planks for nine days, so I'm a beginner-although the one in my other routine is more advanced. Todays planks were a straight-arm knee plank, a left and right side plank, a reverse plank, and a cobra stretch. Each is 20 or 30 seconds.

I suggest you excerise 3 or 4 times week. Along two day body rest. After all it important that your body should get some rest after working out.

It’s nice to know that you are recovering, friend. I’m sending prayers your way!

Yes, I love the plank exercise and the variations. Though I have a long way to go in terms of fitness, I can hold the basic plank for about 3 mins.

Thanks for your advice. My plank routine has me resting every sixth or seventh day.

I am doing this everyday (morning and night) and I can hold my body in this position for 2 minutes and I notice that it strengthens my back and I don't experience back pain anymore 😊

Yes! It's awesome, isn't it? I had lower back pain for years from all the time I spent on concrete when I was a carpenter, and it's gone now!

This morning I did a plank for 50, left & right side planks with arm raised for 20 & 20, side planks left & right for 20 & 20, and cobra sretch for 40. A few minutes ago I did a plank for 66-in the middle of my core routine.

I like that the routines are different everyday-although I don't always like the increasing level of difficulty.

I'm only doing two planks to for 30 & 70-because they're part of my core routine. Today's my day off for the plank routine. I realized that the cobra stretch isn't a plank. My legs are sore from walking last night.

I did a lot of planks today, but too lazy to specify. Feel free to be in awe of how many planks I did!
