I couldn’t find a specific Sanskrit name for this, but I believe it’s a variation of Camatkarasana or ‘wild thing’ pose. A beautiful heart opener and upside-down-dog. I fully intend to bring this into a full wheel some day…
Makara Adho Mukha Svanasana
Planks are hard. But planks change your body. No amount of crunches will give you the results that dolphin plank will. Shaking is good, and be sure to BREATHE. This is a really simple move, but it’s sure to get you bikini ready.
Troubleshooting. If you’re not feeling it in your abs, suck your belly into your spine and hold it there. If your back hurts, lift your bum and readjust your shoulders. Keep your neck long without straining.
More. Lift your right leg, lift your left leg. Alternate straightening your arms one at a time keeping your tush from dropping to protect your low back. Tap your knees to the ground and squeeze them up twenty times. Go longer than you think you need to.
