How to do Reverse Plank
Begin seated with legs out in front of you. Place your arms at your side with fingers facing towards feet or slightly outward. Squeeze your abdominals and raise your pelvis into the air until you make a straight line with your body. Keep head in line with body, not bent up or dropped back. Elbows should be locked for maximum support and shoulder safety. Dig heels into ground and squeeze glutes for stability.
This exercise should be done in 30 second- 1 minute holding increments. 3 minutes is the goal for total holding time, broken into increments.
