The Plank Spiderman Squat is one of my favorite exercises because it works your core, your chest and your back, while also being a great cardio exercise.

Important notes on form (see video for demonstration):

  • In your plank, be sure to keep your shoulders directly above your wrists and your chest between your hands
  • Look slightly in front of you at the end of your mat

Modified version (see video for demonstration) :

  • Instead of tapping each foot on the ground by your hands, bring the knee to meet the elbow on each side, then step the feet in and out of your squat one at a time

 

Complete 3 sets of 5, with a 30 second rest between each set.
