Happy weekend and new month!
During the plank challenge last November, a few people struggled with some exercises and I’m sure you’ve noticed I have posted more beginner options here, in the last couple of months.
Today’s exercise is the single leg plank. This is usually done on the elbows or hands (arms extended) on the floor. If you find the full plank challenging already, this will be even harder.
Start in plank position and elevate your right foot a few inches off the ground, legs straight.
*Hands, elbows and shoulder in a straight line*
Keep your hips in the same position as they naturally try to rotate when you lift your leg.
*Don’t let your hips sag/lower back dip*
Keeping your hips still and in neutral position, challenges your core more than the regular plank. This strengthens your core more! Switch legs after the 30 seconds.
Try this on an elevated surface as seen in the picture attached. And when you get comfortable, after a few weeks, then you can practise on the floor.
It’s all about progress… which you will definitely see if you put in the work.
Have a great month!
