Plank with Lateral Arm Raise

| Fitness Index


Move Targets: Upper Back and Core


Step 1: Come into your high plank with hands under the shoulders. Your feet will be a little wider, but no wider than your mat. Push back through the heels and press the arms away from your mat, rounding out the shoulder blades and engaging the lats.


Step 2: Exhale and lift one arm out to the side to shoulder height. Hips and chest stay square to the mat. Replace the hand on the floor and switch sides.


Modification: Perform the plank on your knees.
