How to do Plank Hip Rotation

Back to Exercises

Difficulty: Medium

Impact Level: Low

Target Body Parts: abs, shoulders


Start in a plank position, resting on your elbows and toes, with straight legs and feet together. Make your body as rigid as you can from your feet to your head to keep it in a straight “plank-like” shape side on. Do this by tensing your quads to lift your knee caps up your thighs, squeezing your glutes together, bracing your core and drawing your belly button up away from the floor, whilst at the same time pressing down into the floor with your elbows.

Keeping your body rigid, twist your right hip toward the floor, moving only so far as you can keep good form. Return to the plank position then twist your left. Focus on keeping tension in the core to avoid putting strain on the lower back.
