It’s Day SEVENTEEN of the one exercise a day challenge. Today’s exercise is the: SIDE PLANK. This move rules for it’s effectiveness at working your entire side body. Although it can be challenging, it’s totally worth practicing the side plank as often as possible, to strengthen you shoulders, your obliques, and your glutes! Watch the training video to learn how to do it! Then, complete your workout as suggested below!
HOW TO COMPLETE THE WORKOUT
I recommend you use an interval timer for this one. Set it up for one of the following:
- 30:30 – 30 seconds of work, 30 seconds of rest
- 45:15 – 45 seconds of work, 15 seconds of rest
- 50:10 – 50 seconds of work, 10 seconds of rest
Complete a total of 4 rounds. That’s 2 rounds on each side!
MAKE IT MORE CHALLENGING
Add an element of balance AND glute burn to this move by lifting your top leg off the floor. You can either keep it up the entire time or lower and lift during your working interval. This will definitely keep the burn going for you!
