The Plank Up is an effective core and upper-body exercise to facilitate strength and execute movement against gravity. This is a “step up” for those who have graduated beyond the static plank.
How to Perform: Start on the forearms and keep your feet to an appropriate width to keep your base of support strong. Initiate with your left arm to walk up onto the hands, and then slowly descend to onto the forearms. Complete 6 to 10 reps with the left arm leading the movement, and switch to the right arm leading.
