How to do Plank With Reach Back

Back to Exercises

Difficulty: Medium

Impact Level: Normal

Target Body Parts: abs, upper back, hip flexor


Start in a plank position, resting on your elbows and toes, with straight legs and feet at shoulder width. Make your body as rigid as you can from your feet to your head to keep it in a straight “plank-like” shape side on. Do this by tensing your quads to lift your knee caps up your thighs, squeezing your glutes together, bracing your core and drawing your belly button up away from the floor, whilst at the same time pressing down into the floor with your elbows.

From this position push your hips back and up and put your weight through your right forearm arm. At the same time reach back with your left hand and touch your right knee. Reverse the movement back to the plank position and repeat on the other side.
