Trainer Svetlana Drogina spoke about the benefits of the plank exercise with rotation.

This, according to the sports instructor, is a complex exercise that involves many muscle groups. It develops the abs, especially the rectus and transverse abdominis muscles, and also provides stress on the oblique muscles.

Also, the plank with rotation trains the shoulder and back muscles, the muscles of the hip joint, the gluteal muscles and the front surface of the thigh. It simultaneously affects the entire body: from the shoulder girdle to the legs.

“Take a plank position with your arms straight, hands under your shoulders, feet on your toes. You can do this with a plank on your elbows. The body is a straight line from head to heels, the body is tense. From the chosen position, while inhaling, lift your right arm from the floor, stretch it into side. Begin to rotate your body to the right until your right arm is perpendicular to the floor and in line with your left shoulder. At this point, your body and legs also form a straight line. Rotate your body to the starting position. Perform the required number of repetitions on one side first, and then to the other,” the coach explained.

She advised doing 5-10 times at first, then increasing them later.
