Overview

The scapular retraction plank is an exercise that targets the abdominal muscles, particularly the rectus abdominis or six-pack muscles. It is a challenging exercise that requires good core strength and stability. To perform the scapular retraction plank, start by lying face down on the floor with your legs extended behind you and your arms extended in front of you. Your feet should be hipwidth apart and your hands should be shoulder-width apart. Engage your core and lift your body off the floor so that you are in a plank position. Your body should form a straight line from your head to your heels. Hold this position for as long as you can, keeping your core engaged and your body still. The scapular retraction plank is a great exercise for strengthening your core and improving your posture.
