    Frick any health/strength benefits resulting from planking. Planks fricking suck, that's the point, and that's why I plank immediately after waking every morning.

    Past the first time doing them, they're worthless. Just do situps or something else you can actually load for your abs.

      For me, it's the vertical leg raise.

    This is my mentality for pretty much any exercise. You can always find something that's more fun and does about the same, if not a better job.

    i have genuinely horrific ab genetics and I'm actually starting to finally see a core emerge after doing either weighted GHD situps or weighted leg raises after every session

    they are shit. abs aren't some kind of a magic muscle when it comes to hypertrophy, so planks are a subpar way to train them, for the same reason you aren't doing curl holds for your biceps, you're just doing curls. just because they stabilize the core, doesn't mean it's the most effective way to make them grow, just do real exercises, something like hanging leg raises, ab rollouts, dragon flags, etc.

      >for the same reason you aren't doing curl holds for your biceps
      speak for yourself, i am doing curl circles in external shoulder rotation holding db by one side to hit supination
      >just because they stabilize the core, doesn't mean it's the most effective way to make them grow
      they don't "stabilise core", they bend spine, because they connec ribs to pelvis
      >hanging leg raises,
      frick shoulders don't get abs because it's hip flexor
      >ab rollouts
      does it really HAVE TO GO THROUGH SHOULDER IN PRECARIOUS POSITION?
      >dragon flags
      lower obliques - they will look like love handles if u're not sub 10% body fat, it's not abs
      abs are between pelvis and ribs - lie on utr back on sth soft, lift ur upper bod by bending in spine, w8 until u can't hold it anymore - yer done
      upper obliques - same only twis torso one side reaching with elbow
      > no u have to move, jolt, rep
      no u don't, actually there is no better way to achieve hypertrophy than static hold provided u have isolated the muscle in question because u automatically get time under tension spanning ENTIRE FRICKING SET not fraction of a second when u actively do ur rep, i am talking about muscular tension on muscle belly itself

    planking is kind of meditative bro. yes, they suck, but that's the challenge, and i go to the gym specifically to challenge myself.
