Hi, I'm Samantha Clayton. And I'm going to show you the difference between push-up plank versus elbow plank. Now any plank exercise is a great total body move that works your core, your shoulders and your glutes. Now a push-up plank is a little different because your weight is distributed more evenly through your palms and your shoulders. So if you want to improve your push-up position this is the move for you. Elbow plank is perfect if you want more of a core challenge. Let me show you how to do each one. Start out by getting onto the floor. Get into a perfect push-up position with your shoulders, elbows, and wrists all in a nice straight line. You want to make sure that your legs are straight out behind you and that your eyes are looking down at the floor to keep a neutral spine. All you want to do is hold this position keeping your core tight. If you want to try elbow plank all you simply do is maintain that straight line position but drop down onto your elbows. This will give you more of a core challenge. It's a little bit harder to hold. But you know what? The best thing to do is do a combination of the two. Core plank, push-ups. Give that a try for strengthening your core.
