Looking to target your core muscles? This plank-like exercise will do just that!
Focusing mainly your upper and lower abs, obliques, and lower back, you’re going to walk your hands as far above your head as you can and force the core to work extra hard to stabilize.
Here’s what you do:
Standing with your feet hip-width apart, bend your knees slightly—or more if needed—and place both your hands flat on the ground. Keep your legs extended and your feet planted. Walk your hands away from your body, as far past your shoulders as you can, until you are in a full plank position. Hold for one count—or as long as you can to start—at the furthest point. Then walk your hands back to your feet and slowly return to standing. And you’ve just completed one rep!
