The inchworm is a popular bodyweight exercise that involves “walking” the hands on the floor from a bent-over toe-touch position into a straight-arm plank. It is usually performed as part of a dynamic warm-up to help raise core body temperature and “limber up” the body from head to toe.


  1. Activates and warms up shoulders, hips, and core
  2. Requires no equipment
  3. Raises core temperature
  4. Pairs well with glute bridges and other warm-up moves in a dynamic circuit
