How to do a Walking Plank to Stand + Block Tap: Active Resistance Training® Tech Study

💪🏼 How to do a Walking Plank to Stand + Block Tap in the Active Resistance Training® tech study.

This takes your plank, squat, lunge, and balance and layers them all together into a fun sequence that introduces you to the blocks for the first time.

Again we are layering the previous skills into one sequence that continues the escalation of your heart rate while adding in the additional mobility component of going from vertical to horizontal and returning to vertical.

There are 10 alternating repetitions of this and the goal is to complete each section fully without a break in maintaining the positions or the active resistance. Find engage and maintain your active resistance through your feet, navel, ribs, and shoulders.

– Line up your toes behind your blocks
– Squat down hands to blocks
– Walk back rt/lft to a full plank
– Step rt foot back behind the block
– Push down rt and stand upright tapping the left toe to the left block
– Descend and step back with left/rt to a full plank
– Repeat alternating 10 times.

This one sequence sends your heart rate right into your cardio zone and you’ll want to maintain a smooth rhythm without a break. If you have any weaknesses in any of the elements it will come out here and you’ll know what you need to focus on in your other elements.

Now let’s practice! Do 10 alternating walking plank to stand
