Planks help u build a sheet of muscle that covers your abz and obliques. It's very effective when combined with another workout

Planks are great for building abs and hips, which is great if your into running, playing sports, or have a job thats forces you to lift a lot. I've found some great plank exercises at ab-workouts-guide/plank-exercise. Also check out 2 Min Full Plank Challenge, Multi-Plank Challenge they're tough but effective and fun.

Planks are effective for sure, really help give you a good strong core. For obliques, side plank dips are where it's at!
