Being a freelancer, I just realized that I need to take some time out for my health. Health being totally neglected was also one of the reasons for me diving into being a freelancer. Working in the corporates for 7 years, I realized that my core muscles had completely gone for a toss. I started walking and jogging to start off with but soon understood that my core muscles were giving up even though my stamina increased.
I did some research online to find out that plank is one of the best exercises one can do for your core as it builds strength to help sculpt your waistline and improve your posture. The reason why I got more inclined towards it was because the form is very straightforward. I also realized that it works for your hamstrings, supports proper posture, and improves balance.
Even though the form is straightforward, holding the position for long takes strength and endurance in your abs, back, and core. I understood in my first few tries that I will have to do it regularly to stay in the position for more than a minute. With the little experience I have got while doing it, your goal should be to hold it for two minutes.
