No Equipment Necessary: Reverse Elbow Plank With Leg Lifts

Looking for a tough exercise that will work your shoulders, legs, and abs? Then have I got the move for you. The hardest part about this exercise is keeping your hips up while you lift your legs. Plus this move will challenge your core.

  • Begin on your back, with your legs straight. Press into your feet and lift your bum off the ground. Try to keep your body in one diagonal line. You can also do this exercise on your elbows if it bothers your wrists.
  • Alternate between lifting your right leg up and then your left. Move with control, making the movements slow and steady, and keeping the hips lifted.
  • Complete three sets of 12 to15 lifts on each leg.

Woah, I'm not able to do this move... I fail the part where I must press into my feet and lift my bum. I feel like I'm gonna injure myself if I try again.

My thighs and lower abs are always the last places to get toned, so I'm trying this with my next workout for sure.

This is hard! Make sure to pull in your belly button and lift your butt so you're forming a straight line.
