Challenge: Reverse Plank With Leg Lift
"I love switching up the view with a reverse plank!" Kenzie told POPSUGAR. "This position allows you to open your airway, and it engages your core, back, arms, glutes, and legs!"
- Begin sitting on your behind with your legs straight. Bring your palms a few inches behind you, fingertips facing the toes.
- Press into your feet and lift your butt off the ground. Try to keep your body in one diagonal line. You can also do this exercise on your elbows if it bothers your wrists.
- Alternate between lifting your right leg up and then your left to complete one rep. Move with control, making the movements slow and steady, and keeping the hips lifted.
- Kenzie's favorite variation of this is doing knee drives or "leg marches" in place of the leg lifts. She suggested adding this exercise in fast-paced, 30-second intervals to your next HIIT workout, or three sets of 30 seconds at a slower speed as part of a bodyweight core circuit.
