Happy FRIDAY!! And happy day 5!! We’re almost through week 1 already and you are doing amazing!!!
Today we’re bringing in the SIDE PLANK! You ready?? Let’s go!!
Your plank variation today is the side plank opener. We start in a low plank, with your forearms stacked horizontally on the ground. Ensure you have proper plank form first – then reach 1 hand up to the ceiling and open into a side plank so your whole body is perpendicular to the floor. Modify if needed – you are welcome to drop your bottom knee – but be sure to keep that nice straight plank line from your head to the floor.
Pause for just a moment in side plank, then control as you roll back to plank. Then open up to side plank on the other side. Keep rolling from side to side – but ensure you have control. Repeat 12 times. (Newbie plankers – each side counts as 1. Experienced plankers, you know the deal. Right and left is 1!!)
We’d love to see you in your plank! I’m sure you’re feeling stronger by now – and we want to celebrate you! Post a plank selfie to share 🙂
