Plank with Leg Raises - Core Strength Exercise

This page will teach you how to do a Plank with Leg Raises. This plank exercise will improve your core strength. It also works on your glutes, legs and lower back. For more advanced planks (i.e. Superman Plank), please visit the main list of plank exercises section. Plank with Leg Raises are also known as Plank Leg Raises, Plank Leg Lifts, etc.

This modified plank involves raising your leg while you are in a straight arm plank or forearm plank position. During this exercise, you should alternate your legs in order to get a complete workout. For an even harder workout, try to hold the raised leg in the air for 30 seconds before switching to the other leg.

All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized. If you have had an injury or are in pain, please see a doctor before starting any stretching or exercise program. For different exercises (i.e. crunches and sit-ups), please visit the core exercises section.
