Written Instructions

  1. Get into a plank position; laying face down on the floor with your weight resting on your forearms, elbows under your shoulders. Come up onto your toes so that your body is in line.
  2. Focus on pulling your belly button into your spine, keep your bum down and shoulders, hips and feet in a straight line.
  3. Brace your core as you focus on maintaining this position.
  4. Gently lift your leg up in the air as high as you can, keeping it straight.
  5. Gradually lower it once you can't go any higher. Respect with the opposite leg. Do this for time.
  6. Focus on keeping your body in a fixed plank position whilst your legs move.
