Comments and tips
The high side plank is a great bodyweight exercise for beginners. This plank exercise isometrically activates the core, hip abductors of the leg closest to the floor, and hip adductors of the opposite leg.
This exercise will help enhance your balance while strengthening your obliques.
Keep your legs and shoulders stacked throughout the exercise.
Keep your hips from sagging for as long as possible.
Once you break form, stop holding the position. Using an improper form may result in a strain or injury. Give your muscles some time to rest before performing another repetition.
