HOW: Anchor a band to a lower position. Face away from it and get into the side plank position by placing your elbow on the ground directly below your shoulder. Have your hips, knees, and feet all in line with your hips in the air. With the top arm, grab onto the band, extend your arm out to the side with a slight bend in your elbow, then pull the band across the front of your body until you get to your chest. Then, let your elbow bend, bringing your arm in at your side. Once your hand is close to your side, press the band straight out. Do this fly and press while you maintain the plank position.
FEEL: You should feel you core and chest muscles working.
COMPENSATION: Don’t let your hips drop while in the side plank, keep them in line with your lower body.
