Leg Lift in Plank Position

leg lift in plank position

Technique

Start in plank position, on your toes or knees. Tighten your abs muscles and lift one leg, do your best to do it without moving any other body parts. Lower the foot and lift the other leg. Keep the hips parallel to the floor (be careful not to tip the hips to one side as you lift the leg). Focus on keeping the hips parallel to the ground, tighten your abs muscles all the time.

Tips

Draw your navel toward your spine throughout the exercise performance as it is easier to make contact with the right muscles and stay in balance.

Alternatives

Choose to stand with arms straight (high plank) or on your elbows (low plank).
