It’s day 19 – We’re side planking today – reaching it through – firing up the obliques!!
Today’s plank variation is called THREAD THE NEEDLE. Start first in a side plank (you may be on your elbow if needed, on your bottom toes or knees – just please make sure there’s perfect alignment from the top of your head diagonal to the floor).
Reach your top arm up to the ceiling – your body should be strong and perpendicular to the floor. Now take that top arm and tuck it under the bottom arm – like threading a needle. Reach as much as you can behind you. It’s ok for your hips to come up a bit. Then return back to your side plank and reach back up again. Complete your reps on 1 side, then switch to the other. You’re welcome to do ½ reps on 1 then the other, if you are still working on your planks. If you’re a plank master, do all 20 on 1 side, then the other.
