How to do Bent Knee Side Plank Hold (Right)

Back to Exercises

Difficulty: Hard

Impact Level: Low

Target Body Parts: abs, shoulders, hip flexor


Lay down on your right side and rest your upper body on your right elbow, making sure the elbow is in the same vertical line as your shoulder. Place your left hand on your left 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 left 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 right foot is slightly behind your left foot. This is the starting position. Bending your right knee, raise it toward your chest, then return to the starting position.

Keep your core braced and glutes squeezed throughout.
