Forget Crunches - Learn To Plank

The Secret To Your New Workout

Back to Articles

When you’re creating a workout routine to lose weight (and with the ingredients in NatureThin, you only need about 30 minutes a day to see results), what are the first exercises you think of?

If you’re like most people, the answer is sit-ups and crunches.

Both can be great tools for losing weight, but are they the best options?

Sit-ups and crunches risk injury to your back. They also don’t hit all of the muscle groups that make up your core.

Uh-oh. That doesn’t sound so good, but don’t worry. There’s hope.

Recent studies show that maybe there’s a different trick to working your core and shedding those pounds.


Remember planking? It was a meme years ago, but now it’s a workout that can change your life.

Both Harvard University and the U.S. Navy are saying that people should use the plank for their go to core exercise.

“The plank, for example, more accurately measures core strength and because it's done by holding the body arrow straight while resting only on the toes and forearms it does not subject muscles to strain by motion.”

That comes straight from the Navy Times. Let’s hear what Harvard has to say.

“[P]lanks recruit a better balance of muscles on the front, sides, and back of the body during exercise than do sit-ups, which target just a few muscles. (Your core goes far beyond your abdominal muscles.)”

Now you know how to get the most out of your core workout, so you can build muscle, lose weight, and avoid injury.

While you’re at it, try working NatureThin into your daily routine. The ingredients in NatureThin can help you see incredible weight loss results.
