Hi Everyone!

It's Day 5 of my 10-Day Plank Challenge!  Want a sexy, firm booty for summer?  This is a great one---the High Plank with Leg Lifts! It firms your core, the backs of your thighs AND your booty! This is an advanced plank and it's all about balance and strength.


Begin in high hover position, then in a steady, focused movement while balancing, slowly lift your right toe high off the ground, keeping your leg straight while maintaining your solid plank position, navel pulled up and in towards your spine.  As you lift up your leg, it’s important to fully focus on tightening your ab muscles and not let your arch your lower back---no sway backs!  Hold that side for 10 seconds then slowly lower.  Repeat on the left side.  This is one rep.


Zip up those abs and do three full reps while keeping your balance with all of your muscles engaged.  If you need to start on your knees instead of your toes, that's okay.  Just try to do the best you can--you can take a couple of breaks or just lift the leg for a few seconds and progress at your own pace. Then you can work up to your toes as you get stronger.


Doing this plank on a regular basis will target tone your core, lengthen and strengthen your spine and give you a nice firm tushie.
