How to Do an Inch Worm Exercise | Sleek/Strong With Rachel Cosgrove


Hi, it’s Rachel Cosgrove for Sleek/Strong.
The exercise we’re gonna do today is an Inch Worm. The Inch Worm is gonna work your shoulders,
you’re core and it’s gonna give you a nice stretch of your hamstrings. This exercise
is really gonna get you warmed-up for your workout. So you’re gonna go ahead and start
with your feet shoulder width apart. And you’re gonna keep your legs nice and straight, as
you bend down and touch your hands as close as you can to your feet. From there, you’re
gonna walk your hands out, one at a time, really keeping those legs straight, as you
go. Keep walking until you’re out into a push-up position, keeping the core tight in a nice
straight line, not letting your hips sag. But also, not raising those hips up. So, right
in between. If you can, keep walking those hands over your head, all the way out there,
really putting some pressure on your core. And then you’re gonna go ahead and walk right
back up, all the way to those feet. Legs stay straight and stand back up. Using this exercise
before your workout is gonna get your shoulders warmed-up, your core engaged, and stretch-out
those hamstrings to get you ready for your workout. I’m Rachel Cosgrove for Sleek/Sleek.

  1. it's extended plank positions not a push up position, says one thing does an other. Athlean x is where I keep coming back to.
