Exercise of the Month
July: Side Plank
This side plank exercise is good for your obliques.
Please note, it’s a good idea for beginners to start with your head, middle of your back, and pelvis against a wall (three point contact), purely for alignment principles. Start resting on one elbow and with your heels just in line with your sitting bones. Maintain a neutral spine and stretch down the tailbone. Employ a lengthened position on both sides of the torso and a nice width across the shoulder blades. The elbow must be underneath the shoulder. With the out breath lift the pelvis off the floor and reach the arm up to the ceiling. Keep the neck nice and long. Hold this position for one in breath and as you breathe out, lower the pelvis back down to the mat.
Repeat five times.
