In this video, Ben demonstrates two bodyweight exercises variations using a wall, in which you hold yourself against the wall in a plank and move along it sideways. This is a fantastic whole body movement, and a fun progression from the basic static plank.


First of all, perform this exericse facing down. Then try the second variation, facing up. Which one did you find harder?


Every Sunday we feature a new bodyweight exercise video from physical therapist Ben Musholt, author of the Mad Skills Exercise Encyclopedia. Ben's diverse movement background spans board sports, martial arts, parkour, and gymnastics. Get watching and get moving!
