Move Targets: Core and Quads


Step-by-Step

Step 1: Begin in a high plank with your shoulders over your wrists and your feet close together. Make sure the hips are not sagging or piking upward, but in line with your body.

Step 2: Without moving the upper body or hips, jack the feet out to the edge of your mat. This distance does not have to be far.

Step 3: Jack the feet back together, then jump them to the outside of your hands. Your hands remain planted on the floor – they never move during this exercise.

Modification (beginner): Step the feet out one at a time for the jack and jump or try placing your hands on a sturdy elevated surface such as a bench or step.
