What does it do? It works triceps, transverse abdominus (TVA) -- a muscle that is often overlooked and helps to stabilize the lower back and lumbar spine, and hip flexors, as well as the groin, adductors (inner thighs), quads, and lower back.

How to? From plank position (check your form, as described for Move 1), lift your right foot and tap it out to the side at about a 45-degree angle (12 – 24 inches from your other foot, which stays in place). Repeat this 8 times in a row on the same side/foot. Then do the same thing on the other side/with your left foot, 8 times.
