Planks when performed correctly are amazingly challenging and are not on most peoples favorite exercise to do list. They do however, target, tone and literally sculpt your entire core. Be sure you can perform the standard plank using good form before adding the leg lifts. If you are an advanced exerciser; make these more challenging by lifting 1 leg off the floor for 10 seconds, then the opposite leg for 10 seconds; repeat 3 times.
Do it Right
- Begin in high plank position with hands directly under shoulders, body in a straight line & feet hips distance apart
- Contract abdominals and lift right leg to hip height pause and return to starting position then lift and lower left leg to complete 1 rep
