How to do Bent Knee Side Plank Hold (Left)

Back to Exercises

Difficulty: Hard

Impact Level: Normal

Target Body Parts: abs, shoulders, hip flexor


Lay down on your left side and rest your upper body on your left elbow, making sure the elbow is in the same vertical line as your shoulder. Place your right hand on your right hip to help as a cue to keep your hips stacked.

Then lift your hips up by pushing down with your elbow and the sole of your right foot. The aim is to lift your hips until they align into a straight line from the crown of your head down to the soles of your feet. Your left foot is slightly behind your right foot. This is the starting position. Bending your left knee, raise it toward your chest, then return to the starting position.

Keep your core braced and glutes squeezed throughout.
