What is a Frogger?

The Frogger is a simple exercise that targets the entire body, working the arms, abs, glutes, legs and heart in one move. It’s an intermediate exercise, so beginners and those with a weak upper body or weak knees should take it slow. It’s best suited for individuals who have mastered the proper plank form and can stay in the position for at least 45 seconds. The plank to squat move is a masterful exercise that utilizes your own body weight to maximal effect. The movement is especially effective in a HIIT workout routine.
