    Consistency is what matters so much with any kind of workouts. At long as you are willing to go at it every day without taking long periods of time off will definitely help you achieve your goals sooner than later.

    Abs are hard to develop but commitment helps so much in getting it done faster.
    Another update. I stopped doing the exercise two weeks ago as I got busy with other things but I think all is well and my abs are holding up. Not getting bigger and flabbier which is a good thing. Thanks for your inputs, I highly appreciate it.

    Staying away from exercising for two weeks isn't that too long. If you have been very dedicated to your workouts, taking two weeks time out wouldn't have any negative impact on your body.

    Planking alone will not give you a six pack, but it is good for posture and spinal alignment, I would do diet, total-body strength training and cardio, which are all good to develop visible abs.

    Surly, it wouldn't give you abs but even it does, it's going to take a lot longer before the abs begins to be visible. Although, you can help intensify getting your abs faster by combining planks with crunches.

    Re: Planking for your Abs

    Yes it is effective in making your core stronger as they engage multiple muscle groups simultaneously. Your abdominal muscles will get tighten. And It is what my basketball coach told us to do everyday because it strengthens our core body which can increase the range and power of shooting the ball to the basket. But to get a six-pack abs, you have to shed fat through jogging or cardio exercises.
