Do these ever do anything? I've been doing planks for months and they still hurt just as much as when I started.

    Just do crunches + leg raises, these actually work and stretch the muscle
    Static hold is only worth doing if you're extremely weak

        Nope, but easy to fuck up your back if you have crap form and weak muscles.

        Looks like diet raiden here doesn't even have abs so I'm a little skeptical; if he's a dyel I'm fucked.

        Most people mess up the color theory, so don't get the proper stimulus. You NEED to start with a yellow one, or else you're wasting your time at best or snapping yourself at worst.

        No just make sure you understand the difference between red/yellow/green etc.

      you are an actual idiot, bridges and planks aren't ab muscle exercises, they're stability exercises. you probably can't even do a fuckin tree pose like half the inflexible, unbalanced goons here.

              now ask yourself if your lifts would be higher if youre stable enough to do that

              stuff like that is great for you in general. im really glad i randomly started doing yoga. you really have to learn how to get into poses like that properly though it takes time

              im a fan of bridges and planks though. ab rollers im not a fan of because ive seen someone smash their fucking face into the floor using one, lol

            I've been drinking all night and I could hold warrior 3 pose for a 10 count. I hate yoga or more specifically people that shill it. It will never get you in shape. Lift heavy, practice a sport and stay lean. Sucking off a white dude with dreadlocks at the nearest stripmall won't get you into shape or help your "spiritual health"

              Yoga isn't for bodybuilding, it's for developing and maintaining flexibility and mobility. You're not going to stay healthy as you age without a stretching/mobility routine and yoga is by far the best one there is.

                retarded shill take. if yogas fun to you go for it, butcthere's nothing inherently better about it. its as good as any competent stretching routine is. also proper lifting keeps you mobile. balancing retarded poses is skill work and has nothing to do with health

    They are probably going to be best for static strength; building stability in your core and hips in a way that is useful for stabilizing yourself when you squat/DL and need to have rigidity in your core as well as not having your hips and knees twisting or moving laterally. However, as an exercise for nice-looking abs, you should really prioritize something that takes you through a full contraction/extension, a full long range of motion, rather than an isometric hold. Something like crunches, bicycles, cable ab contractions, etc

    that indicates that you have no core strength at all, not that the planks aren't doing anything.

    Planks work for me. I have abs after losing 40 pounds that I don't think would have shown up without planking, and they started showing up even when I was over 15% body fat. I don't do any other ab work and I've been doing planks for about half a year.

    I started with 3 sets of 1-minute planks, three times a week, and worked my way up to 3 sets of 2-minute planks. These days I just do a single 4-minute plank once a week to maintain because I'm lazy.

    theyre good for core strength from a performance standpoint, and will help you get a flatter stomach and better posture, but they wont train your 6 pack like crunches and leg raises will
