Plank Jack Pushup

This exercise targets your abs, thighs, shoulders, chest, and hip flexors.

Start in a plank position, with hips, shoulders, and heels in line.

Hop your feet apart wide, and then bring them back, keeping your abs as tight as possible.

Then, go down into a pushup.  (If you are just starting out, you can go down to your knees for the pushup.)  Bring your knee as close to your elbow as possible at the same time as you do the pushup.  Go back to starting.  Do this again with the other knee to complete one rep.

Do 10 of these total.  Having good form on these is very important, so if you can’t quite keep a straight back or do a full pushup, start out slow, and only do 3-5 reps until you have it down.
