During the inchworm, focus on slow, controlled motion rather than speed – think of keeping your spine flat throughout the motion. Avoid locking your knees or overextending your shoulders to prevent joint stress.
This exercise has you bend over, place your hands on the ground and then walk your hands out as far as you can before walking your feet back up to your hands. This exercise requires a lot of core strength to resist letting the belly sag towards the ground as you walk out and the further out you can get your hands the higher the core demands.
The exercise requires no additional equipment, meaning you can do it almost anywhere
This exercise is great for building core strength, upper back strength and hip mobility.
Begin in standard push-up plank position, with hands underneath your shoulders and toes on the ground as a pivot point. Exhale as you tighten your core muscles, keeping your legs straight, walk your feet as close to your hands as you can, forming an upside-down “V” shape with your body. Walk your hands out and away from your feet, when you an’t go any farther, keep your body level and plank-like for one count before walking your feet toward your hands again, putting you back into the forward bend position continue for the length of a room then turn around and repeat again.
To add additional challenge and strengthen muscles including the chest, triceps and front shoulders: add a single pushup when your body reaches the pushup position. This full-body exercise serves as a great pre-workout warmup.
