Side-Climbers

Move Targets: Core, Lats and Quads


Step-by-Step

Step 1: Begin in your high plank. Set your hands underneath the shoulders and bring the feet together. Squeeze your inner thighs and brace the core. Round the shoulder blades out and push away from the ground, engaging the lats.

Step 2: Keep the feet together as you jump them up and over to one side of your body. Try to get your knees on the outside of your elbow, tucked underneath the armpit. Get as close to this point as possible. Keep equal weight in both hands.

Step 3: Jump back out to your plank. Don't rush this part. Get into a solid plank position with your legs straight and your hips in a straight line with the body. Then jump it over to the other side.
