30 Second Plank Hold Exercise My name is Tamal Dodge and this is Plank or upper push up. An upper pushup which everybody knows, everybody does that one. It seems simple but actually it vocals a lot. Adding elements of stimulating your body, pushing the earth away and linking the breath with a movement, it brings a whole another aspect. Anything about yoga is about breath. Root your hands into the earth and step one foot back after the other the top of a pushup. My main reason why I love this exercise is to get your core strength. Firm your thighs lift on your knees. Firm your abdominal muscles compact in your body. Breathe as deep as you can, harmonious integration of breath and move. What you want is you’re looking for even breathing. You’re looking for deep full breath. Just to keep it completely deep and full keeping your body active let your face pass it. Inhaling to top we’re going to hold this for about thirty second, exhaling into the body. Just letting the burning sensation, the stimulation, the activation just settlement that brings that meditative aspect, so most people when they’re on this post they actually seek their hips too far inward, what you need to do is lift your bottom up the level of your shoulder blades. Lift under knees firm your arms, firm your entire body compacting it, making a very firm plank position forward, that’s the basic form. Then after the thirty second just lowers your knees down to the ground and -- that keeps you calm with your body yeah your mind, your face is passed but your body is working sweating and moving through it. And we just got ourselves some major yoga abs. Namaste.
