How to do a Walking plank

Starting from a plank position, turn your arms so that your forearms are touching each other and stay at right angles with your upper body. This is the starting position. From here, move one forearm forwards and then the other with the aim of moving yourself forwards. Your feet should be limp and allow themselves to be dragged along to allow your body to move forwards.

Count one repetition per step.


– Face forwards.
– Keep your back straight.
