Side Plank Bench Lift

To do the Side Plank Bench Lift, set up on your side with your elbow under your shoulder and your top foot on the bench. Lift up into a side plank from your forearm with your bottom foot on the ground and your top foot on the bench. Lift your bottom hip up as high as you can and engage your obliques, lats, glutes and your adductor of your top leg. Then holding the side plank position, lift your bottom leg up to touch the bottom of the bench. Do not let your hips sag. Feel your top adductor working to hold you up as your bottom adductor works to lift your leg. Do not rotate toward the ground as you lift. Slowly lift the leg and then lower it back down. Complete all reps on one side before switching. If this move is too tough, regress to doing the side plank off the ground.
