Plank - tighten glutes
Hello, in plank position.. how do you tighten your glutes? By arching the hips forward towards the floor which also makes the lower back have less than a hole?
I work out on Wednesday ok
I did but they dont explain how yo tighten the glutes
Torrower is Tuesday it is taekwodo ok
Backward plank too
You dnt hav to use a plank to tighten glutes... all tht your doing in plank formation is contracting the muscle and holding it ... you can do this with or without plank formation...all you do is contract the glutes and hold the contraction which is isometric.. u can do the same isometric contraction for abs without plank also... in fact without plank ud probably get far better results for abs by contracting your abs and holding tht contraction..seeing as you can hold the contraction far longer...in a plank your arms and upper body are giving out first not your abs and definitely not your glutes..in fact the same isometric contractions used in planks can be and should be done throughout every exercise we do (Mayb possibly very few exercises tht dnt need to if any )
Looking in the mirror is probably the best way to see if everything is as it should be. When the say tighten your glutes in plank, you push the floor and do kinda tilt the pelvis. You are supposed to keep everything tight to get more calorie burn but as long as you have proper form it's not necessary.
