  2. Breathe deeply while keeping your core tight.
  3. Do not let your hips sag. This is very important.
  4. Try to twist as far as you can. The goal is to twist till your chest is parallel to the ground.

Variations

  1. While in a side plank, raise your top leg up and swing back and forth. This variation is called a plyometric side plank.
  2. If you are having trouble, perform a modified side plank, this is an easier variation. Instead of having your legs straight, bend your knees 90-degrees and rest your weight on your knees rather than your feet.
  3. Place feet on a Swiss ball or an elevated bench.
  4. While in a side plank, roll inward into a traditional plank with your weight resting on both your elbows and forearms. Hold each position for 5 seconds.
