Side Plank with Dip

Side plank with dip

This week's #MondayMove 'takes the side plank up a level, and targets that muffin top that might have been gained over Christmas and New Year,' says Anya Lahiri, trainer at Barry's Bootcamp. 

'A great core and lower back strengthener this abs blaster will also work the arms and shoulders and help improve balance.'


Lie on your right side with your legs straight

Prop yourself up on your right elbow positioning your elbow directly underneath your shoulder

Raise your hips up towards the ceiling creating a straight line between your ankle, hip and shoulder while extending your left arm straight up

Make sure your head stays in line with your body, and you don't rock forward or back

Dip your hips down to about an inch above the floor and then raise them as high as you can

Repeat for 30 secs on one side and 30 secs on the other
