How to Do Forearm Plank With Reach

The forearm plank with reach should begin with good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop the forearm plank with reach.

1. Lie facedown on the floor, elbows beneath shoulders, forearms in front of you, palms to the floor.

2. Tighten your abs as you raise up onto your elbows and toes, evenly distributing your body weight between your toes and elbows. For stability, place your palms against the floor and spread your fingers.

3. From your heels to your shoulders, keep a straight line. (There will be no droopy bottoms or bottoms that are raised to the sky!)

4. Hold this stance for as long as you can while keeping your form right.
