How do you do a high plank to activate your entire core?

When it comes to perfecting your plank form, the key is to engage your core (almost like sucking it). This ensures that all the muscles you want to train are activated while you hold the position. Since you’re also straining your hands, remember to keep your shoulders away from your ears, rather than lowering your body into the plank. Otherwise, you may end up with a sore back or shoulders instead of the desired effect.

As for the position of your head, it may be tempting to look at your feet while planking, but this will throw the line off your body. That’s why it’s best to train your eyes on the floor directly between your hands to stay strong and stable, even as it gets harder to hold your plank.
