Plank Jacks

The plank is good for your core, but adding a jumping jack motion with your feet pushes this move to a whole new level. The plank jack is a great cardio move; it raises your heart rate while working your lower and upper body.

Start in a standard plank position, with your shoulders over your wrists, your body in one straight line, and your feet together.

Like the motion of a jumping jack, jump your legs wide and then back together. Keep your pelvis steady and don’t let your butt rise toward the ceiling.

Is this attainable for ladies too?


Cool! Nice one 😉


An exercise I have heard of before! Woot, woot! Now we are in business, lol the ALL MIGHTY plank! People either love it or hate it normally. Haha, this exercise already does a great job working the core and stabilizes muscles, which is one reason I enjoy it, but damn does it hurt after awhile (you really do feel it) LOL. how long do you hold your plank Chape?

I like the added movement of the jack, it really makes the movement more advanced for those who want a challenge, good mix! good choice in workout Chape, proud of your workouts, you do a great job demonstrating!
