Two for You!

 Here are two side plank exercises you can do anytime, anywhere to strengthen obliques….that’s the purpose of our exercise blog…to introduce new and fun exercises that you can do at home with little or no equipment because we know you can’t always get to the gym!
When performing a side plank exercises always be sure that your elbow and shoulder are aligned properly. Your elbow should be directly underneath your shoulder so that you don’t put any extra strain on your shoulder joint.
Exercise #1: Side plank with breath
Do this exercise slowly and incorporate breathing as demonstrated on the video. Beginners should do this with their knee on the mat. Make it more challenging by balancing on your feet instead of  your knee. Do 10-15 on each side.
Exercise #2: Side Plank with elbow to knee
Lift your body up into the side plank position and bring elbow to knee as shown on the video. Repeat 10 repetitions without lowering your hip to the mat.
