Plank Challenge!! #Repost @plantstoplanks with @get_repost ・・・ We're going to keep sliding through this week with another plank variation for your Tuesday! @vitalifit_coach is back in the gym to demonstrate a slider Army Crawl. The legs stay solid but the upper body does the work to move you along as you walk your hands down the aisle and back. If you don't have a lot of space you can still do the movement for a shorter distance for the allotted time. Be sure to really focus on keeping your core locked in and control your feet on the sliders. Adapt by using a couple of towels or old t-shirts on a wooden floor if you don't have sliders. Beginner: Perform for 30 seconds Intermediate: Perform for 45 seconds Advanced: Perform for 60 seconds #plank #planks #plankchallenge #sliders #valslides #sliderarmycrawl #armycrawl #core #coreworkout #exercise #fitness #challenge #stability #workout #fitfam #motivation #plantstoplanks #excellenceinexercise @excellenceinexercise @valslide
