My lovely clients providing a great example of how to do a side plank. Such a good exercise for strengthening the abdominals particular the obliques which don’t get a good workout with exercises such as crunches. The glutes and shoulders will come in on the action too!
Unilateral exercises, where you are working one side at a time, are great for identifying any weaknesses, which you can then work on addressing.
Keep your hand under your shoulder. Keep your body, head and neck in a straight line and don’t let your hips sag. Engage your abdominals throughout.
Give it a go!
