High planks are the mother of all strength-building moves. They require all muscular elements of the body to fire in order to hold a perfect form. The key to this move is arching up through your shoulder blades as you press down into your hands.
- Begin in tabletop position.
- Keep your palms planted, fingers spread wide, and lift off your knees to balance on your toes with your feet hip-width.
- Shift your weight forward so that your shoulders are directly above your hands.
- Tighten your belly and lower your hips by squeezing your glutes, bringing your back into a long straight line from the top of your head to your heels.
- Hold for 30-60 seconds.
