Targeg Muscle: Abs, Lateral and Posterior Deltoids

Reverse Plank Overview

Reverse plank targets all of your back and leg muscles. It's a posterior chain exercise. 

You might have seen it in yoga too; it's a great strength training exercise if you want to strengthen your body. In short, it's a multi-purpose exercise that targets various muscle groups. 

How to Do it

  1. Press into your palms and lift your hips and torso upward. Look up to the ceiling during this move.
  2. Point your toes and keep your arms and legs straight. Your entire body is strong and it should be forming a straight line from your head to your heels.
  3. Engage your core and suck in your belly button toward your spine. 
  4. Hold this position for almost 30 seconds if you can.
  5. Lower your body back to the floor, returning to the starting position.

Tips on Reverse Plank

  1. When you can no longer stay in the right posture, it's time to end the exercise.
  2. Do not pressurize your knees: do the exercise with your glutes and back.
