Side Plank FMB

You will need the Functional Movement Brace on your back and the PVC pipe in place

Begin with your feet shoulder width apart and your hands on your hips. Draw your belly button in and step out to the side, either at a 3 or 9 o’clock position (stepping to the left or to the right). Inhale while you keep both feet facing forward and bend the leg you’re stepping with. Keep the knee of the trailing leg straight, the leg that’s staying still, during the motion. Your hips will shift backwards as your torso falls slightly forward. Exhale as you step back up to the starting position.

Make sure you:

1)           Keep your belly button drawn in

2)           Keep your shoulders back and down

3)           Breath out on the way down; breath in on the way up

4)           Don’t let your torso twist

 *Perform 3 sets of 10 repetitions per side using only your bodyweight*
