DAC Personal Trainer
This move of the month improves hip strength and stability and one of the top exercises for gluteus medius activation.
- Position the body in a traditional side plank set-up with the supporting elbow beneath the shoulder and the legs aligned together (one on top of another).
- For modification bend the bottom leg.
- Place hand on the top hip.
- While maintaining a side plank with core engaged, lift the top leg up and down while keeping a neutral alignment between the shoulders, spine, hips, knees and ankles.
Tips: Avoid dropping the hips as you lift the leg. Movement should be coming from the hips. Keep your feet flexed up.
Recommended: Try to do a couple sets of 10-20 reps on each side..
