Wide-Stance Plank with Diagonal Arm Lift for Women
Wide-Stance Plank with Diagonal Arm Lift
Start to get into a pushup position, but bend your elbows and rest your weight on your forearms instead of on your hands. Move your feet out wider than your shoulders, instead of placing them close together. Your body should form a straight line from your shoulders to your ankles. Brace your core by contracting your abs as if you were about to be punched in the gut. Raise and straighten your right arm—with your thumb pointing up—and hold it diagonally in relation to your torso. Hold for 5 to 10 seconds and switch arms. That's one rep.
