Body Focus:


• Start in a plank position on your forearms with feet shoulder-width apart.
• Ground your toes into the floor to stabilize the bottom half of the body. Engage your core, glutes and hamstrings and flatten your back to keep your entire body neutral and straight.

• Repeat by alternating each side.

Useful Tips:
• Engage your core, keep your hips square, and do not tilt.
• Keep a neutral neck by gazing down at the floor.
• Don't lift your hips too high or arch your lower back. Your body should form a straight line from your shoulders to your ankles.
