This side plank is a great exercise to strengthen the core stabilizers (the muscles that keep the trunk stable during functional movement).
If you are a runner this exercise is especially good as it also helps to strengthen the hip muscles, which will support the hip and knee joints during running, when there is a greater demand placed on these muscle groups.
Ensure the bottom hip doesn’t sink to the floor.
But before starting our Runner To The Core series, you need to ensure you already have a strong core. Why not work your way through our Pink Lady® Core series?
