Dolphin Plank

Even yogis love elbow planks, but we call them something else. An elbow plank by any other name will still work your abs.

  • From Downward Facing Dog, inhale and shift your weight forward coming into plank position (top of a push-up). Exhale as you lower onto your forearms so that your shoulders are stacked directly above your elbows and your body is parallel with the floor.
  • Dolphin Plank is an intense pose, so if you can't hold for five breaths, lower one or both knees to the floor.
