25 Best Exercises For People Over 40

6. Modified Plank

Planks are known for targeting all the core muscles and when you are performing modified plank, you can expect the exercise to target the core muscles in a modified manner. Modified plank, other than making your core stronger, would also strengthen your upper body and arms.

How do you perform this exercise?

Begin with your knees and hands on the ground. Now, move the hands a few inches away from you (toward your front). Lower onto the elbows and you will instantly find your core contracting for getting the required support. At this point, you should focus on drawing the belly button in as much as you can. Stay in this position for 30 seconds to 1 minute (initially you might struggle, but practice will make the job much easier for you). If you have sensitive knees, use pillows or towels as padding under them.
