Slider Push Up (Alternating Leg Up)

  • Advanced
  • Slider Plate
  • Chest

Setup instructions

1) Get in the plank position - start on all fours and extend your legs back behind you. Place your hands on the slider plates - directly under your chest. Keep the core tight, back flat, head neutral and tuck the hips in.

Perform instructions

1) Slowly lower your chest to the ground. As you do this, slowly push the right slider plate away from you and lift your left leg up towards the ceiling. Keep your left arm close to your body.

2) Pause at the bottom, then 'push up' (think as if you're pushing the ground away). On the way up, pull the plate back towards you and lower your leg down so you're back in the plank position.

3) Follow this pattern and repeat on the other side.
