Attention ladies and gents, summer will be approaching sooner than we’ve expected, is your body beach ready yet? If the answer is no, don’t worry, because we’ve got an amazing workout that can help you get started. If you’re into fitness at all, then you’ve probably heard of planking. Planking is such a great move that not only engages your abs, but also helps to workout your entire body. While planks may be a pain to perform, the benefits are too good to resist. In order to help you guys out, we’ve decide to show you guys an awesome new variation on the plank.
The movement is a simple plank to pushup variation and we can bet that after this move you’ll start to feel those muscles forming. To start, place yourself in a pushup position, but bend your elbows and rest your weight on your forearms. Your body should be creating a straight line from your shoulders all the way down to your ankles. Contract your abs in order to keep your core engaged. Bring your body up into a pushup position by going up one arm at a time. Pause for a second and then return yourself back to the starting position on your elbows. That entire movement counts as one rep.
In order to really get the results you’d want, be sure to repeat the move for at least ten to fifteen reps of two to three sets. Hello summer body!
