Side Plank Exercise How To Guide

How to Guide: Side Plank

Start on your side with your feet together in your right hand placed directly under your shoulder, keep your core tight and your hips raised creating a straight line from your head to your toes, now hold the position without letting your hips drop for the desired amount of time, before switching and repeating on your left side.

Benefits of the Side Plank

The side plank truly works your core. In particular, it’s a great exercise for strengthening the oblique abdominal muscles which don’t typically get worked during ab exercises such as crunches.
