High Plank to Push Up Overview

A Plank to Push-up is a full-body exercise and a variation of a plank. The move takes a standard plank to the next level by adding an element of controlled, moving arm work. Maintaining a plank position, you alternate between a high plank and a forearm plank. This exercise serves as an excellent core strengthener.

How to Do it

  1. Begin on all fours in a forearm plank, which is a standard plank position with your elbows dropped to the mat.
  2. Engage your core to keep your hips as still as possible. Push up onto one hand, placing it where your elbow just was.
  3. Push up onto your other hand. You should be at the top of a push-up with your legs extended and engaged behind you. Squeeze your buttocks for stability.
  4. Lower back down to your elbows, one arm at a time.
  5. Repeat with alternating arms. Change which arm is leading to ensure equal work on both sides.

Tips on Plank to Push Up

  1.  Keeping your back straight does the trick for you in this exercise.
  2. Control is the key that opens the ways to muscle size and strength.
  3. Do not try to go beyond your limits; maintain your posture and that's all.
