Side Plank Oblique Work

It’s a great day for some oblique core work I think! If you agree, try out this set!

Start in a side plank on with your hips stacked on top of each other. You can do this on your forearm for a modification, or on your palm for a greater challenge. Hold a ball or other small and light object, or you can do it without a prop.

Reach your top arm high to the sky, then reach around to thread it under your plank, activating your lower obliques. Next, hold your top arm up and draw your top knee and elbow towards each other. This is quite the balance challenge, so it’s ok if it’s not easy for you at first!

Finally, float your top leg up and top arm out long for a final hold! Then release and repeat on the other side.
