Like the plank, the side bridge is a basic exercise to improve core stability and strength.
The side bridge also strengthens the lateral system.
Through various progressions the intensity and difficulty of the exercise can be increased.
Lie on one side with your elbow directly beneath your shoulder and legs stacked.
Push your body up until there is a straight line from head to feet.
The elbow is positioned directly beneath the shoulder.
Hold the side bridge for the prescribed amount of time.
Place your upper hand on the hip and prevent the shoulder from rolling forward.
If performing the exercise with both feet stacked is too difficult, you can place both feet on the floor to add stability.
