How to High Plank
You Should Feel This: Abs
Exercise Families: Plank
Trainer: Ashley Steele
Start in a push-up position with the legs behind you and feet placed hip-width apart. Shift your weight forward until the shoulders are positioned directly over your hands. This is the starting position.
Reposition the hands as needed to allow full extension of the arms without any bend at the hips or knees.
Stiffen the torso by contracting your abdominal muscles and hold the high plank position for the specified amount of time.
Be sure to engage the core by tightening the abs throughout the plank. Keep the body straight and the hips level—not allowing the pelvis to drop to the floor or lift in the air as you fatigue.
You should feel this working the arms, shoulders, abs, and core.
