Get it Right Get It Tight


Move Targets: Core

gliding-mountain-climbers

Step 1: Grab a pair of gliders (use paper plates on carpet or two hand rags on hardwood). Come to all fours and place the balls over your feet in the centers of the gliders.

Step 2: Get into your high plank, bringing the shoulders over the wrists and pushing back through the heels.

Step 3: Pull one knee under the chest while stabilizing through the core. Kick it back as you bring the other knee up.

Tip: Look between your hands to keep your spine aligned, which will also help you resist the urge to pike the hips.

Modification: Pull one knee and out at a time, or drop to your knees, working the same leg repetitively.
