Move Targets: Abductors/Adductors and Core


Step-by-Step

Step 1: Come to your high plank with hands under the shoulders, fingers forward and legs no more than hip-width apart. Keep the body in a solid, straight line. Flex the foot.

Step 2: Lift one leg as high as you can with good control (without piking the hips). Continue to press through the heel of your grounded leg.

Step 3: Exhale, send the leg out to the side keeping it straight. Make sure to keep equal pressure in both hands. Bring the leg back to the plank position without putting it back on the floor. You'll maintain this tripod with extensions for several reps before switching to the other side.
