In addition to Level 1, the exercise has the switching movement from “Elbows Plank”  to “Hands Plank” position. Because of this, a higher core-control is required and this is the reason because this exercise is categorized as Level 2.

  • Focus your attention on opening your chest during the “Backstroke” movement rather than twisting torso;
  • Feel oblique abs activation during the “knee-touch” movement;
  • Stop immediately the exercise if you feel low-back or shoulder pain;
