  • Bring your right knee forward under your chest, with the toes just off the floor.  
  • Return to your basic plank. Quickly switch and pull the left knee in.  
  • Continue switching knees and start to pick up the pace until it feels a little like running. 
  • Keep On “running” in your plank for 30 seconds. 


  • Do not bounce on your toes as you perform the move. 
  • Do not focus much on speed rather focus on complete move of your legs. 
  • Arms and hands should be straight down from your shoulders. 
  • Your back should not be curved. 
  • Your hips should not be raised.
