Side Plank


Capt Laydon
To perform a Side Plank, assume a side elbow and foot position with the spine straight and the abdominal muscles drawn in and braced.

Breathe normally and hold for progressive periods of time.

Start with six to 10 seconds, and recover when you start to lose your form.

Alternate from the left to the right side.

Repeat three times on each side.

When you first start doing this exercise, your provider may start you on your knees.
