Re: Plank Jacks?

Here is my understanding of how to do a plank jack: Get in a plank position. Forearms on ground, and toes on ground supporting the body.

Keep body in line, shoulders, hips, knees and ankles should be level. Contract abs. Look down at the ground with head up, not hanging to support neck. Legs should start together, jump them apart, hold, then jump them back together again. Repeat. Tighten abs and move legs in a fluid motion.

I hope this helps
Rayne
