Advancing The Side Plank
The side plank is a commonly prescribed exercise that focuses on static bracing through the lateral chain. The side plank is probably one of the most common exercises prescribed when it comes to bracing exercises (in addition with the plank hold). In the video below you will see a progression on the side plank by osteopath Heath Williams of Principle Four Osteopathy that involves lifting the body off the ground into the side plank position whilst also moving the top arm and leg which challenges ones stability.
