Day 12: Side Dips
Day 12! More than ½ way through week 2.
You are building such amazing consistency committing to your daily plank challenge – you should feel very proud of yourself!
Today we’re dippin’ it in our side planks. Side planks ARE hard – so feel free to do this move from your elbow or high plank – and also drop your bottom knee if needed. The most important thing here is proper alignment and form – a nice straight line from the top of your head diagonal to the floor.
In this move, once you’ve got perfect side plank form, imagine there’s a string attached to your hip. Allow your hip to dip down, almost touching the floor, then the string pulls your hip back up again. Keep your body perpendicular to the ground – I find it helps to imagine your body is between 2 panes of glass. You can’t lean forward to back.
Depending on your level, you can either complete all 16 reps on 1 side, then another 16 on the other – or split it ½ and ½.
– 16 Side dips
– Baseline low plank + 10 seconds
Repeat 3 times
