Plank jacks are an awesome cardio move alone but add in the dolphin hop and you get double bang for your buck so to speak; this move raises the heart rate while working both your lower and upper body. You get a full body workout and it will have you sweating in no time… drop those phones, (well don’t really drop them) and do something good for yourselves.
Begin in plank position, with your shoulders over your wrists, your body should be in a straight line, and your feet together.
- Just like the motion of a jumping jack, jump your legs wide and then back together 3 times, than proceed to do three little hops until you are in a pike position then jump your feet back out with 3 little hops of if you choose one hop back into plank position. Repeat for 30 to 60 seconds.
- Want to try something else? Go Tabata style 4 to 6 times 20 seconds on and 10 seconds of rest. Make it harder: 8 to 10 times
- Make it easier: Walk your feet in and out and walk your feet up into pike than proceed to walk feet back out to starting position. The move can be modified for your fitness level.
- Tip: be sure and keep your abs pulled in tight, do not let your hips drop.
