Friday Fitness: Plank Variations

Friday Fitness this week is all about planks! If you have mastered the plank and are growing board holding still for minuets on end here are a few variations for you!

*Form is important for the plank, these are advanced moves. Make sure that you are comfortable holding the exercise first and then try out these variations.

Inch worm: Walk out to a plank position, hold for 5 seconds, when walk your way back up. Do 12 reps, 2 sets of this exercise.

Dynamic plank: Starting down in a low plank, lead with the right hand as you are coming up to a high plank. Do 6 reps leading with the right hand, and then alternate, leading 6 reps with the left hand. Do 2 sets.

Plank row: Hold a high plank and while alternating hands, bring one hand up toward your shoulder and raise your elbow up toward the ceiling. Lower down and repeat with the other hand. Right and left is 1 repetition, do 12 reps, 2 sets.

Triceps plank: Hold a low plank, hands together but do not interlace fingers. Push through the hands and rise up into a high plank. Modification: you can lead with one hand, just like the dynamic plank.  Do 12 reps, 2 sets.
