The side plank is a great exercise to practice if you’re looking to change up your planking routine and want a little more of a challenge.

The side plank is an isometric exercise that improves core strength which will help with posture and overall stability. Being a compound exercise, learning how to do a side plank and perfecting your form will benefit not only your core, but also your legs, glutes, and arms.
