Move Targets: Total body


Step 1:  Start in forearm plank position. Bend your right knee, flex your foot (foot parallel to floor), and press your foot up toward the ceiling. Be sure to keep your pelvis and hips straight by lifting with your glutes and not your lower back.

Step 2: Lower your right knee slightly and repeat this movement, making sure your hips don’t sag or your butt doesn’t rise above torso level. After completing your reps on this side, switch and repeat sequence on left leg.
