  • Come into plank position with straight arms and legs, holding a dumbbell in each hand on the floor. If you don't have a pair, you can place your palms on the floor or on two yoga blocks.
  • Keeping your abs engaged, slowly tiptoe your feet as close to your hands as possible with straight legs. Keep your heels lifted the entire time. Then moving with control, tiptoe your feet back to plank position. Don't rush your movements.
  • This counts as one rep. Complete three sets of 10 reps.
