Recently celebrity nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar shared a picture on Instagram where she was attempting a 3-level plank challenge. Plank is a great workout for losing weight.

For a normal plank exercise you need to lie on hard surface on your belly. Raise your body by bending your elbows. Make sure that your weight rests on your forearms not your hands. In this posture your body should be like a straight line from your shoulders to the ankles. Now brace your core.

Rujuta Diwekar’s first level plank challenge requires you to start with a normal plank where you press your heels on the ground. In the second level you have to lift your feet against the wall with your heels pressing the ground. The third level needs you to place your feet higher up on the wall while keeping your body in the plank position. You have to perform all the three levels of this plank challenge every day. Start by holding your position till the count of five. Gradually increase the count with each passing day aiming to take it to 60. Check out Rujuta’s post to see how to do it.
