Walk The Plank

Walk The Plank

 

Putting your plank in motion trains the core harder – and the chest, shoulders, and triceps, too.

 

How To Do It:

The Up-Down Plank

  1. Get into pushup position and bend your elbows so your forearms rest on the floor (a plank). From there, place one hand on the floor as if in the bottom of a pushup. Place the other hand down and push yourself up until both arms are extended.
  2. Reverse the direction, lowering yourself back into the plank one arm at a time. Keep your core tight so your body does not twist to either side. Keep your hips level.

 

Did You Know:

Training your core to resist rotation and flexing at the spine while moving makes the plank much more effective for building real-world core strength.

 

Quick Tip:

Try three sets of eight to 10 reps of up-down planks at the end of each workout. A rep is completed when you return to the plank position.planking
