Side Plank with Reach Under for Women
Side Plank with Reach Under
- Lie on your left side with your knees straight. Prop your upper body up on your left elbow and forearm. Brace your core by contracting your abs forcefully as if you were about to be punched in the gut. Raise your hips until your body forms a straight line from your ankles to your shoulders. Raise your right arm straight above you so that it's perpendicular to the floor.
- Reach under and behind your torso with your right hand, then lift your arm back up to the starting position. That's one rep. Turn around so that you're lying on your right side and repeat.
