Elbow Plank

Nov 14th, 2011
  • Start in Table position (hands and knees), and lower down to the elbows. To set up proper alignment, reach the hands for opposite elbows directly under your shoulders; this is how far apart your elbows should be from one another. Keep your elbows where they are and spiral your forearms forward to interlace your fingers; pinkies press down into the mat.
  • Engaging your abdominal muscles, step one leg back at a time onto the balls of your feet, just like in Full Plank. You should have a straight line of energy from the crown of your head out through your heels.
  • Hold for 5-10 breaths, or as long as you can.
