Virtual Fitness: Plank Knee Tucks

P l a n k K n e e T u c k s

Tucks

Plank Knee Tucks is a total body strength training exercise that works the heart, thighs, hips, shoulders and core stabilizers.
Plank Knee Slides Variation: Use sliders under your feet, so that you slide forward and back, instead of stepping. If you don’t have a set of sliders, cut up an old towel and use one small section under each foot.
More Challenge: 1) Lower into a full plank with your tailbone lower than your shoulders. 2) Slow your pace. 3) Perform diagonal knee tucks. 4) Perform double knee tucks using sliders under each foot. In this version, both knees are drawn up toward the chest at the same time, and then released into a full plank.
EXERCISE DOs and DONTs – As with all exercise programs, when using exercise videos that appear on this site, you need to use common sense. If your muscles are weak, either do the modifications, or don’t attempt this exercise if it’s too difficult for you. When starting an exercise program, be sure to discuss your plans with your healthcare provider
