The plank walk-out is an advanced plank variation targeting the core and shoulders. From a standing position, the lifter descends into a plank-type position but “walks” the hands forward until they are out in front of the head. This is far more challenging to the core than having the arms directly under the shoulders. Beginners will need to progress to this exercise.
