An advanced plank variation to develop coordination and balance.
Lie down on one side on the floor.
Place one leg in front of the other one (it doesn’t matter which leg is in front).
As you exhale, raise the torso by pushing your legs and the extended arm until your body forms straight line.
Place another hand on your waist or extend it upwards.
Pause at the top as long as possible and then return to the classic plank on straight arms.
From this position do the side plank in the other direction.
The side plank can be performed resting on one elbow. This is an easier variation.
Avoid arching your torso and do not tense your shoulders or raise them to your ears.
