Straight-arm plank with kick-back

The straight-arm plank with kick-back is a hybrid movement that trains the abdominal and triceps muscles simultaneously. It can address multiple muscle groups in a time-efficient muscle-building or circuit-style workout, while also providing an additional cardiovascular challenge.


  1. Strengthens the core to stabilize while the upper body is moving
  2. Strengthens the triceps even with light weights
  3. Improves metabolic conditioning
  4. Encourages rotation and mobility in the thoracic spine (upper back)
