How Well Do You Know The Tone It Up Trainers?
This Is The Tone It Up Trainers' Favorite Move—Hands-Down
We're launching National Workout Buddy Day on March 1! Post pics with your exercise pals (using #NationalWorkoutBuddyDay), and if you tag @WomensHealthMag, we may share your photo.
Looking for a move that hits all your major muscle groups, in the shortest amount of time? Karena Dawn and Katrina Scott, the founders of Tone It Up, have just the thing.
The uber-popular personal trainers and fit-fluencers shared their all-time favorite move, and it’s honestly genius. It’s a combo body-weight exercise that "works so many muscles,” says Katrina, making it a major multi-tasking win during workouts.
Because there’s a lot going on, it might take a try or two to master all the steps. Karena and Katrina break it down in the video above, and you can find a complete how-to below.

Start by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart. Bend over, hinging at your hips, until your fingers are touching the ground. Then walk your hands out in front of you until you reach a plank position.
Now, pause: This is a good time to check your form! Make sure your wrists, elbows, and shoulders are in a straight line, perpendicular to the floor. Check that your neck is creating a straight line (but not tensed or strained!), with your gaze towards the ground. Your abs should be engaged, which will keep your back flat and prevent it from sinking or tilting (if your butt is up in the air, it's a dead giveaway that your form is off).

From there, you’re going to do what Karena and Katrina call a tummy-toner: Bring your right knee toward your right elbow, crunching your abs in the process. Then place that foot back in plank position and repeat on the opposite side.
Next, drop down to your knees for a triceps pushup. Keeping your back straight and your abs engaged, lower your body by bending your elbows back while keeping them close to the sides of your body. As you do this, raise one leg up as you flex your butt, for a booty-kickback. As you push back up, lower your leg and repeat the move using the opposite leg for the booty-kickback.
Push yourself back up to a high plank position, and walk your hands back to meet your feet. Slowly raise to stand, flexing your glutes as you move. All of that counts as one rep! You’re now back in your starting position and ready for more.
“You’re working everything,” says Katrina. The walk-out targets the shoulders, the plank works the abs and quads, the tummy-toner engages the obliques (which will give you a tight waistline), the pushup works the triceps, the booty-kickback targets the glutes, and the final deadlift engages the glutes, hamstrings and lower back. Another bonus? You can perform this exercise anywhere—and with no equipment.
To take the move up a notch, don’t lower down to your knees when you do the triceps pushup and booty-kickbacks.
