You all know we adore our planks. And love making fun interval style workouts with them. We love doing planks almost daily to help ensure even ab development and planks help with having our abs display muscle tone. Planks are great for adding in some definition to your stomach without adding bulk.

And one question we get asked often is can you do planks everyday?
Short version: YES! But you don’t have to.
Long version: Planks don’t damage the muscle as much as other ab exercises so making it okay to do everyday. Planks train your abs to be in a controlled state when your spine is in a neutral position. So you can do planks everyday if you want since it doesn’t tear down your muscles.
See you in the next workout.
