- Chest and thighs both touch the ground simultaneously.
- Keeping elbows in, push up with the body in one rigid line to the top of the plank.
- Repeat.

The Finish
- Plank position on hands and toes/knees, hips in line with the body.

🧢 Coaching Tips! Squeeze your legs and butt to help keep a straight body position throughout.
