Planking has become increasingly popular for core strengthening, and for good reason: it works – in large part because it engages multiple muscle groups simultaneously. What are some of the benefits you can expect from adding this exercise to your regular routine?

For example, when your legs are farther apart in a squat, you'll work your inner thighs and glutes a little more than your quads.

Generally, a split training program means that we work each of the muscle groups on separate days and not all of them on one session. In addition, we should work maximum 3 body parts per training and we let minimum 3 days for the worked muscle groups to recover.
