    Actually planks are hold to hold for like 5 minutes, we do side planks on both sides and regular planks in martial arts and its a lot harder then you’d think.

    Megan Fox did these daily to get the tummy in Transformers along with 20 mins of knee ups, leg swings and ball leg lifts and 30 mins of cycling. Planks are the most effective way to get slim sexy abs if your female. If the normal set of reps aren’t working for you it means your abdominal muscles are stronger, increase the time you hold the position. If its boring, try doing it in the living room and watch a good movie at the same time.

    I’m really sorry but why waste a couple of minutes for a single exercises when u can finish a couple of sets in the same time…?
    It’s not even just about boredom it’s about not wasting of time.

    People who get so easily bored are boring. What are you, 15 or something?

  5. mvolokh101 says:

    WTF is wrong with you…
    maybe you got it wrong but I wasn’t trying to show off or anything like that I simply really think this exercise is boring and not intense enough…It might work for older women but for teenagers it’s just too simple.

  6. rwehrhart says:

    mvolokh, if you can just shove your head up your ass, that should fit your requirements. Try it!

    that doesnt make any damn sense lol

  8. lukemoore says:

    no offense…and i mean no offense, but I checked and you ain’t exactly “in shape” yourself to be commenting.

  9. SunMan6A6 says:

    so what the fucking big deal about it?

  10. solja2424 says:

    no offense…and i mean no offense, but uh the person doesnt exactly look “in shape” be teaching this video

    BORING !
    It’s too easy and it’s so boring to simply stand like that for a couple of minutes…Eh I need something more intense…without any additional equipment…

  12. due to my inattentive watching of this video, i may have discovered a new and more effective form of the side plank.

    for a harder challenge, try doing this exercise while propped up on one fully extended arm, with one foot on top of the other (rather than crossed), without footwear and with the other arm up in the air.

    you may have to tape your wrist but damn if it isn’t more fun trying to keep the proper shape while staying balanced -and it feels more effective!

  13. a lot of these exercises won’t stress younger bodies; i never felt any burn or physical stress from calisthenics until i reached my 20s. only when i began to age did a lot of this health ‘bs’ start to make any sense.

    god, i hate growing old ­čÖü

  24. is this supposed to be painful in any way at all? because if you’re supposed to be feelin’ the burn, Im not.

  25. riluis1126 says:
