Overview

The elbow plank saw is an exercise that targets the abdominal muscles, particularly the rectus abdominis or six-pack muscles. It is performed by starting in a forearm plank position with your elbows directly under your shoulders and your feet hipwidth apart. From this position, you slowly and controlledly lift your right knee towards your chest, then lower it back down. Repeat this movement with your left knee, alternating sides. Keep your core engaged throughout the movement and do not allow your hips to sag. Perform 10-12 repetitions on each side for 3 sets.

Variations of fitness exercises refer to different ways of performing a specific exercise or movement to target various muscle groups, intensities, or goals. These variations aim to challenge the body differently, prevent plateaus, and cater to individuals with varying fitness levels.

Alternatives

These alternative exercises can be used as substitutes when the original exercise is unavailable or challenging to perform due to various reasons such as equipment limitations, injuries, or personal preferences.
