Tone and tighten your tummy by doing the Forearm Plank!
Get rid of flabs and tone your ab muscles by doing the Forearm Plank! This plank variation has lower impact on your arms, making it easier to support yourself. It also builds muscle strength and helps you practice your balance.

Apart from helping flatten your tummy, doing planks help reduce back pain and even improve your overall posture. It’s also a great way to stretch your shoulders, calves and the arches of your feet.
Just follow these steps to learn how to do this exercise correctly.
