Instructional Video


Written Instructions

  1. Get into a press up position; laying face down with your arms extended out directly under your shoulders, palms on the floor facing forwards. Come up onto your toes so that your body follows a straight path from your shoulders to toes.
  2. Try pulling your belly button towards your spine and keeping your bum down, avoid your chest collapsing.
  3. As you hold this position, bring your right hand off the floor to tap the left shoulder.
  4. Once you’ve tapped it, lower it back down and do the same the other side.
  5. Try to maintain a strict plank position throughout the movement.


Struggling to complete this movement? Step it down a notch and try a straight arm plank.
