Plank reach

The plank reach is an exercise targeting the entire core, particularly the oblique muscles. It resembles a plank exercise, but the primary difference is that the lifter extends their arms forward, one at time. The core, especially the obliques, must work hard to maintain stability. It can be performed for time, with holds in the reaching position, or for reps.
