Plank-A-Day Challenge – Day 5

Inchworm to Plank

This variation of a plank is a full body exercise that helps build strength and flexibility.

Always hinge at your hips and focus on NEVER letting your knees bend! It’s going to give you a great hamstring stretch too!

  • Start in a standing position
  • Hinge at the waist – try and keep your legs as straight as possible
  • Walk your hands out in front of you until you are in a plank
  • Walk your hands back to your feet – try and keep your legs straight
  • Stand up
  • Repeat

Perform this exercise 30 seconds, rest 10 seconds, repeat for another 30 seconds.

Want to make it harder?  Add a pushup before walking your hands back to your feet

Need to take it down to a Level 1? Cut the duration to 15 seconds.

Now go run!
