Exercise of the Week

Exercise of the Week: Plank Thrusts-This advanced version
of a plank puts it together with the concept of a “burpee”.
It is advanced and needs to be taught with modifications.
Begin in a tuck position and jump or walk the legs out
into a plank. Jump or walk the feet back to a tuck
and walk or jump the feet out to one side, return
back to tuck
and repeat to the other side.

CUES:
  • Keep core engaged throughout to avoid a hyper extended back
  • Hop legs to each side like creating a T in the movement.
  • Keep the elbows soft/slightly bent
  • If form is being comprimised, slow this movement down
  • BREATHE
MODIFICATIONS:
  • To make this less intense, take out the jump and walk the legs instead.
