Side plank is the ultimate core builder! In a side plank, you are activating the oblique abdominal muscles on the side of the body that typical core work doesn’t access.
But the benefits of the posture don’t stop there!
Shoulders, arms, and wrists become stronger and legs get toned from the heel to the hip. The core engagement of the posture also supports the low back, building strength in the muscles in this area.
Balance can also be improved in this posture as we hold on one supporting arm for time. Focused concentration and breath awareness can still the mind, taking you out of your monkey mind and into the moment.
