Plank from elbows with hip extension

  1. Lie on a mat face down, rising up onto your forearms and toes.
  2. Maintain abdominal draw-in, and contract the glutes so that the pelvis aligns with the ribs and pubic bone.
  3. Extend the right leg upward toward the ceiling, keeping a contraction in the glutes. Hold for two seconds, and repeat for a total of 10 times.
  4. Perform the same movement on the left side.

Tips:
Maintain the abdominal draw-in and glutes contraction throughout the duration of the exercise. If you break your form, reset before continuing.
If the hip extension is too difficult, perform front plank only.
