How to Do the Kneeling Plank

  1. Stand on your elbows and knees.
  2. Brace your abs, and try to form and hold a straight line from your head to hips.


The kneeling plank is a bodyweight exercise to strengthen your abdominals. It is an easier version of the classic plank, in which you stand on your elbows and feet, and not your knees.
