Plank Extensions (Lv 5)

 

Difficulty:

5

Equipment Needed:

Mat

Workout type:

Balance/Agility, Low Impact, Strength Training, Toning

Body focus:

Instructions

Start in push up position; bodyweight in hands and toes. Reach forward at shoulder height with left arm while simultaneously lifting right leg so that it’s parallel to the floor. Hold for ten seconds. Return to plank position and repeat the motion, this time reaching with your right arm and raising your left leg simultaneously. Hold for 10 seconds and return to plank position. An extension on each side is one set.

Purpose of the exercise

This most advanced version is much harder than it looks and requires significant core strength and balance. If you are looking for a total body toning move, add this to your gym or home workout routine. You will see and feel the difference in your ab muscles, core strength, glutes, and shoulders, as well as an increase in overall balance and control.
