Today's Fitness Friday features the Side Plank.

About the Side Plank

The Side Plank with a banded hip abduction is a unilateral exercise that encourages core & lateral hip strength.


This exercise also strengthens the deep muscles of your lower back, to help with lower-back pain.

Written Instructions

  1. Begin on your side with knees bent to ninety degrees, forearm flat on the floor with your elbow directly under your shoulder.
  2. Squeeze your core and glutes to lift off of the floor and form a straight line with your body.
  3. Once stable, lift your upper leg towards to the sky feeling the muscles in the outside of your hip engage.
  4. Hold this position for 20-30 seconds
