Knee to Elbow Plank

Major Muscles Worked:

Core

Set Up:

  1. Start in a high plank position with your feet closer to your elbows than you would for a traditional low plank.

The Movement:

  1. Start by lifting one foot off the floor.
    Tuck your hips just slightly.
  2. Bring your knee of your raised foot towards your opposite elbow.
    Your goal is to touch your elbow with your opposite knee.
  3. Replace the foot to it’s original position.
  4. Repeat with other side.

Specific Cues:

  • If you can’t get your knee to meet your elbow, try shifting your body forward so that your palms are directly under your shoulders, or even a bit lower.
  • There is some flexibility involved in this exercise.
