Side-Plank Leg Lift

No Equipment Necessary: Side-Plank Leg Lift

What is not to love about exercises that work multiple areas of my body at once? Challenging moves never bore. Plus, you can feel the benefits of core strength work almost immediately. This variation on the side plank targets your shoulders, waist, abs, back, outer thighs, and glute meds (the often under-worked muscle on the side of the pelvis that helps stabilize your hip joint).

  • Place your right elbow on the ground. Extend both legs out so that your body is in one straight line, balancing on the outside edge of your right foot. Flex both feet, and reach your left hand to the ceiling.
  • Keeping your spine lengthened and your abs engaged, lift your left leg up just higher than your top hip. Then slowly lower it back to your bottom leg.
  • Keep your waist up and lifted, and don't sink into your bottom shoulder.
  • Do three sets of 15 to 20 repetitions on each side.
