Plank Pikes

The plank pike is an effective exercise that develops core stability and strength while increasing stability and mobility throughout the spine and hip region.

Instructions

  1. 702_A
    Start in plank position resting on your elbows directly beneath your shoulders, and your feet hip-width apart. Make sure that your body is in a completely straight line from your shoulders to ankles.
  2. Plank Pikes
    Tighten your abs and raise your hips into the air as high as possible, pausing for a moment at the top before lowering back into the starting position.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Do not allow your back to round at any point.
  • Squeeze your abs and glutes to maintain stability throughout the entire exercise.
  • Press down forcefully with your forearms to make your abs work harder.
