Tall Side Plank – On Knees, Hip Abduction

  • HOW: Get set-up on your side with your hand directly under your shoulder and your elbow straight. Have your knees bent at a 45 degree angle with your knees and feet supported on the ground. At the same time push your hips up and forward as high as you can and hold this position. With your top leg, extend your knee and lift your leg up towards the ceiling while keeping it straight. Lower your leg down to the ground while keeping your knee straight and repeat.
  • 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, do not let your body rotate
