The walkout improves total core strength through an entire range of motion. The movement also improves flexibility and upper body strength, particularly in the shoulders.


  1. 611_A
    Stand with your feet hip-width apart. Bend over and place your hands on the floor just in front of your feet.
  2. Walkout
    Shift weight onto your hands and begin to walk them forward. Brace your core, squeeze your glutes, and keep a flat back as you walk.
  3. 611_C
    Walk out until your hands are beneath your head. Your body should form a straight line from your shoulders to your feet. Reverse direction back to starting position.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Do not let your hips sag low or hike high during the walkout.
  • Make sure you keep strong elbows as you walk out. Don't let them bend.
  • From the standing position, make sure you push your hips back and feel your hamstrings engage as your reach for the floor.
