Plank-A-Day Challenge – Day 4

Today we’re doing a plank that will require you to brace your core to maintain balance as you focus on an extension.

Deep breath and here we go!

Alternating Reach Plank

  • Start in a high or low plank
  • Press your feet, knees, and thighs together
  • Draw your shoulders down away from your ears and engage your shoulder blades so they are slightly pulling toward each other
  • Lift your belly up nice and tight
  • Drop your tush a bit but keep a nice long spine
  • From this position extend your left arm straight out (palm facing in) and reach
  • Replace your arm under you and extend and reach with the opposite arm
  • Alternate reaching for 45 seconds

Form notes:

  1. When you extend your arm, keep your hand and arm at or below shoulder height.
  2. Don’t “throw” your arm out during the extension, think slowly lifting and reaching

Great job! Keep me posted on how you’re doing.

Now go run!
