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

Lie on your left side with your knees straight and prop-up your upper body on your left elbow and forearm. Raise your hips until your body forms a straight line from your ankles to your shoulders and keep your hips raised. Engage your glutes (squeeze your butt) so that your hips are pushed forward.

Watch for:

 

  1. Position your elbow under your shoulder.
  2. Draw in your belly button towards your spine
  3. Make sure that your shoulders stay away from your ears
  4. Focus on slow controlled breathing, spending 3 seconds each on the inhale and exhale

 

 *Perform 3 sets, holding the Side Plank for up to 1 minute on each side *
