This exercise strengthens your entire body, but it is especially good for your core muscles and your upper body.

How To Do It:

  1. Begin in a plank position. Your arms should be directly under your shoulders and your body should be in a straight line. Engage your core muscles (pretend you are about to pull on a tight pair of jeans).
  2. Cross your right hand to the left (so that your right arm is crossed behind your left arm) as you step your left foot out to the left.
  3. Step your left hand and right foot to the left so that you return to a plank position.
  4. Take two more steps in this direction.
  5. Repeat going the other way.
