Your arms will definitely feel this one.

When it comes to things I struggle with, juggling and holding planks are at the top of the list. Juggling demands strength, precision, and stability, while planks… well, they’re just plain tough. If you’re looking for a serious upper body challenge, though, why not take it up a notch with the juggling plank?

!function(n){if(!window.cnxps){window.cnxps={},window.cnxps.cmd=[];var t=n.createElement(‘iframe’);t.display=’none’,t.onload=function(){var n=t.contentWindow.document,c=n.createElement(‘script’);c.src=”https://cd.connatix.com/connatix.playspace.js”,c.setAttribute(‘async’,’1′),c.setAttribute(‘type’,’text/javascript’),n.body.appendChild(c)},n.head.appendChild(t)}}(document);

The good thing about the juggling plank is that it doesn’t involve actual juggling. The challenge, however, lies in handling a substantial medicine ball while trying to keep up the plank position. Get ready for a strenuous workout.

To begin, assume a high plank position with your arms positioned directly below your shoulders. Then, carefully shift your weight onto one arm and grab a small medicine ball with the other arm. Make sure to choose a weight that challenges you without compromising your form. Toss the ball in the air, swiftly switch arms, and catch it with the free arm. Continue passing the ball back and forth while holding the plank. After 3 sets of 12 reps, your arms will be on fire.

This exercise targets your upper body predominantly, with a significant core workout as well. Who knows, you might even have a cool party trick once you’ve mastered it.
