How to Warm Up With Plank V Jumps

No Equipment Necessary: Plank V Jumps

It's so important to warm up before exercising, especially now that colder temps are sweeping across the country.

To learn how to do this dynamic move

  • Come into a Downward Facing Dog position, on your hands and feet. Bend your knees, come onto the balls of your feet, and press your hips toward your heels. I like to call this the launch position.

  • Repeat this sequence for a minute straight, starting off slow at first and then increasing your pace as you're ready.
