How To Do A Side Plank

  • Laying to one side, place your forearm on the ground just below your shoulder.
  • Extend both legs so that your body forms one straight line from your head to heels.
  • While flexing your glutes and bracing your entire core, raise your hips off the floor to start.
  • Keep your core braced as you breathe normally and hold for time. Make sure to keep your glutes and oblique flexed hard.
