Push ups are a good go-to exercise to train multiple muscle groups in your body, but these get tiresome after a while. Now, you can try the Walking Plank as an alternative and see new and better results! All you need is yourself and a free treadmill.
How it's done
- Find an empty treadmill, and kneel behind the belt. Place your hands, palms down, on the bottom of the belt just before it rolls under.
- Place your weight in your hands and stretch your legs into a plank position. Essentially, you are on an angle, and your hands are on the treadmill belt.
- Lean your weight into your right hand and let the belt push away from you.
- Swtich you weigh to your left hand, and continue "walking." Your hands will automatically start "walking" to prevent you from falling.
- Do steps 3 and 4 smoothly for 30 seconds.
- Rest for 30 seconds, and then repeat the walking plank for another 30 seconds.
Why it works
This raised plank works your back a little more than your average plank. As long as all you muscles in your core are engaged, flex your gluts and quads to add a leg workout at the same time.
