Body Blog: Planking

Okay, okay. I didn’t mean this kind of planking. And no, I didn’t sit there flipping through all of the pictures and laughing. Although this one is my absolute favorite. Umm…anyway. As I’ve mentioned in my past posts, planks are great for strengthening your core. It also uses every single muscle in your body, so you can call it a full body toner!
Since I know you’re an expert at planks, I challenge you to bring it to the next level with this move.
Single leg plank with leg pulses

Begin in a basic plank position, with your hands directly under your shoulders. Squeeze your glutes and abs tight. Lift one leg into the air, about 10-12 inches above the ground. Once you maintain your balance, pulse your leg into the air by bringing it one inch higher and lowering it back down to its original height. Repeat for about 30 seconds before switching sides.
Share your planking pictures with me! Fun or fitness, @jackelynho is waiting to see what shenanigans you’re up to this summer.
