Starting Position

  • bring your body into the plank position
  • rest the forearms on the floor and stretch out your legs to the back
  • lift the hip, so that the body builds a line from head to heels
  • the shoulders are right above the elbows now
  • your body weight is on the forearms and feet

Correct Execution

  • keep up the tension in the core area
  • now turn the hip to the left side, then to the right side, repeat this several times
  • the hip is allowed to touch the ground, but try to avoid it
  • you can turn the feet with the motion a bit
  • the arms and shoulders do not move as possible, the turning happens in the hip only

tips for the workout

  1. it becomes a little easier, if you bring your forearms on the seat area of a chair
  2. the body remains in a line then, too
