Side Plank

Dumbbell Side Plank

The Dumbbell Side Plank exercise works your shoulders and abs.

-Okay. This is called the Side Plank with Arm Movement. You wanna start with your ankles, knees, hips, shoulders in a straight line. Your elbows should be under your shoulder and your forearm on the ground. Because we're using the dumbbell here, you just keep it with the arms straight on the thigh. From there, you're gonna press down onto your forearm and bridge up, bring the dumbbell out in front of you, back to your hip, and you lower yourself down. So you're up on a 1, bring the arm out, bring it back, and then down on a 1. Good! You wanna make sure the shoulder blades stay back and you keep the glutes tight. And when you come up, keep the abdomen drawn in and tight.
