Side Plank Progressions

Purpose: to activate your spinal stabilizers to maintain a neutral spine, then activate the torso muscles to initiate the movement and hold the position.

Description: Lie on your side supported by the elbow with your hips and knees quite bent. Move into the side plank position with an accordion-like unfolding of the legs, all the time keeping a braced neutral spine. Start with 10 second holds and 3 repetitions.
