Move Targets: Core and Chest


Step-By-Step

Step 1: Start in the standard plank position. Feet are hip-width apart, pushing back through the heels, while your hands are under the shoulders and on top of the gliders. Do not let the hips sag or pike as you work.

Step 3: In a continuous motion, you'll slide the hand out to the side as far as you can reach while maintaining your strong plank.
