Overview

The elbow plank alternating pike is an exercise that targets the abdominal muscles, particularly the rectus abdominis or six-pack muscles. It is performed by starting in an elbow plank position with your feet shoulder-width apart and your hands directly under your shoulders. From here, you pike your body up so that your legs are straight and your toes are pointed. Then, you lower your body back down to the starting position and repeat the movement with the opposite leg. This exercise is a great way to work your abs and get a six-pack.
