Walking Plank: A Caffeinated Version of the Original

Looking to kick up volume on your planking? This move has the power to change your plank! Not only targeting your core, obliques, hamstrings, quads, it also nails your deltoids! I will try any move that will help to shape my shoulders. Something to think about when doing plank, really engage your mid-section. Imagine a big bear giving you a hug, pull in super tight. Remember to keep your shoulders away from your ears.

Give this one a try and see if you like it!

Ramped Up Core Move: Walking Side Plank


  • Begin in plank position with your hands underneath your shoulders, body in one straight line.
  • Simultaneously cross your right hand over your left, as you step your left foot to the left. Then simultaneously step your left hand and right foot to the left, so you’re back in plank position. Your hands move together as your feet step apart.
  • Repeat this for five steps to the left, and five steps to the right. Be sure to keep the hips low as you move, drawing the navel toward the spine.
  • Repeat twice more for a total of three sets.
