Plank Elbow Raises

Planks help to strengthen your upper body and core. Get into a plank position by lying on your stomach with your shoelaces touching the floor and your hands together. Your palms and elbows should be flat on the floor. Raise your body in a straight line as in the pushup position. Engaging your core muscles, push forward from your toes and lift your body and arms off the floor. Lower your body and arms slowly back to the starting position. Perform three sets of 20 to 30 repetitions.


You will need a ledge or a low bench, or even a chair that’s stable and heavy enough to not topple when you lean on it.
