How are those abs feeling?
Nice and tight?
On Day 5 of our 30 day challenge we focus on obliques with our Side Plank Dips. Give it all you’ve got it’s only 5 minutes.
As always good form is essential so keep that core engaged throughout the exercise. Pace yourself in a way that pushes you without knocking you off balance. You should get a little cardio out of this one as well 🙂
Side Plank Dips
Start in a side plank either on your elbow or with your base arm extended. Free arm can be on your hip or for a greater challenge straight up in the air, perpendicular to your body.
Place feet one behind the other if you are a beginner, one on top of the other if you are more advanced.
Engage core (draw your abs into your spine) – keeping glutes, hamstrings and quads tight, lower your hips until they almost touch the floor then raise back to starting position.
Repeat for the amount of time in your set — 20 seconds today 🙂
Alternate sides between sets.
