Core Exercises: Three Point Plank

Core Exercises: Three Point Plank

The plank is one of those core exercises that is deceptively simple looking. Take your standard plank to the next level with this three point plank and give your abs a workout while also challenging your balance

How to do the move

Get into the plank position up on your hands, arms straight. Lift your left hand off the floor and reach your arm out in front of you. Hold. Replace your left hand on the floor then repeat with your right hand, right foot (reaching your leg behind you), and finally left foot. Hold your hand/foot off the floor for a set period of time such as 20 seconds. Going through both hands and feet is considered one rep.

Muscles that benefit

The main muscle that this move works is the core. Secondary muscles worked as stabilizers are the pectoralis major, deltoids, latissimus dorsi, erector spinae, and glutes.

How to use this move

This is a great move to add to the end of your workout as a burnout, or in between sets as an active rest.

Get the equipment

Use your Gymboss timer to challenge yourself to hold the plank for a longer amount of time each time you do the move. Try working up to one minute or more for each limb.
