How to Do

How to Do Reverse Plank Hold

The reverse plank hold 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 reverse plank hold.

Beginning

Beginning Reverse Plank Hold

1. Sit with your legs straight and your hands behind your hips on the floor.

2. Squeeze your glutes and quadriceps while slightly tucking your pelvis.

3. Lift your hips off the floor while keeping your alignment.

4. Maintain full-body tension by continuing to engage your core.

Movement

Reverse Plank Hold Movement

1. You are going to be in a reverse plank position, similar to a crab walk position.

2. Your arms are going to be turned around so that your fingers are facing behind you with your palms on the ground. Your feet will be flat on the ground with your legs bent at the knees.

3. From this position, concentrate on holding yourself up, while lowering and raising your hips. Repeat moving your hips for repetitions.
