General And Specifics

  • do not underestimate this fitness exercise, although abs and core have a stabilizing function, they are very well trained, too
  • only do this exercise, if you are well-trained, because the lumbar spine area is strained by lifting up arms and legs at the same time

Starting Position

  • lay your front side on the floor
  • stretch out the arms to the front
  • the palms point to the floor
  • the legs are stretched out, the toes on the floor

Correct Execution

  • lift chest, arms and legs slightly, they hover across the floor
  • move the arms to the pelvis in a bow and the legs apart
  • the limbs do not have any contact to the floor
  • come back controlled to the starting position
  • now you can rest the limbs on the ground for a moment
  • begin with the next rep right away

tip for the workout

  • if your floor is smooth, you also can put towels below your arms or legs to do the sliding variation of this exercise
  • the focus is on the glutes, adductors and abductors then
