Fit Mom Kneeling Plank-Up

Beginner Level of Difficulty

The kneeling plank-up is a core exercise that also targets the shoulders and triceps.

MUSCLES ENGAGED


Picture of Shoulders

Shoulders

The shoulder is the most movable joint in the body. However, it is an unstable joint because of the range of motion allowed. This instability increases the likelihood of joint injury, often leading to a degenerative process in which tissues break down and no longer function well.

Picture of Triceps

Triceps

Triceps are an often forgotten muscle group. Triceps are located on the opposite side of the biceps at the back of the upper arm. Well strengthened and defined triceps make the arm look bigger and sleeker (reducing the "flabby arm" look).
