Move Targets: Core and Shoulders


Step-by-Step

Step 1: Start in a high plank with your shoulders over the wrists (check yourself!) and feet together in the center of the bench or step. Push back through the heels.

Step 2: Walk the hands in toward the bench, letting the heels drop down. Look up toward your belly button and stop when you've reached your max. Think of steering this move with your hips by hinging them and pushing them up and back. This will engage the core and alleviate unneeded pressure on the shoulders.
