Side Plank – On Knees

  • HOW: Get set-up laying on your side with your elbow directly under your shoulder. Have your forearm facing out, and bend your knees so that your thighs are at a 45 degree angle. Place your top hand on your top hip for body awareness. While keeping your feet together, push your forearm and knee into the ground to lift your hips up into the air. Push your hips up and forward as high as you can, hold for the time prescribed.
  • FEEL: This should feel like a full body exercise. Your shoulder and shoulder blade muscles will be working as well as your hip, back, and stomach muscles. You will especially feel your right oblique muscles and right hip muscles working if you’re laying on your right side. Follow the video for other cues and tips.
  • COMPENSATION: Do not let your hips or shoulder sag.
