A plank hold is an incredibly effective move that targets the entire body. Shoulders, core, back, quads, glutes, everything gets targeted when you do a plank. There are a variety of plank moves that you could do at anytime. Here is an updated version I found of a plank that is challenging and incorporates a bit of cardio!
Step 1: Place your hands on the floor directly beneath shoulders in push up plank position. Your body should be in a straight, diagonal line from your head to toes. Do not let your stomach sag or arch.
Step 2: Jump your feet out to the sides, and then back to center like a jumping jack. Repeat this move for 60 seconds.
**Modification: Instead of jumping, step alternating legs out to the side and then back in.
