Instructional Video


Written Instructions

  1. Start in a plank position, resting on your forearms with fingers facing forwards and elbows directly under shoulders. Come up on your toes and pull your belly button inward so that your body is in a straight line.
  2. Trying to maintain as stable as possible, come up on one hand at a time so that your resting on your hands with your arms fully extended.
  3. Place one arm at a time back to the original plank position, then try coming up with the other hand first. 


Finding this too tough? Practice the same movement with your arms resting on a raised surface. Make sure your arms are still under your shoulders and your body is kept in a straight line.


Looking for more of a flamin' challenge? Try doing plank press ups, adding a full press up movement into your plank ups can really help you get your sweat on.
