FitClick notes that if you weigh 150 pounds, a plank will help you burn between three and four calories per minute.
The plank is one of the best exercises you can do for your core because it builds isometric strength to help sculpt your waistline and improve your posture. And depending on the type of plank you try, you can also engage your back, arms, shoulders, glutes, and hamstrings.
