To do the Side Plank Stars, start in a side plank position with your elbow under your shoulder and your body in a nice straight line to your feet. You can choose to stack your feet or place your top foot in front. Beginners may need to drop their bottom knee down toward the ground.

Keeping your bottom hip up, lift your top arm up toward the ceiling as you raise your top leg up. Lift them up then lower them back down and rotate into a front plank with your elbows under your shoulders and your body in a nice straight line.

Do not let your hips sag or your butt go up toward the ceiling as you shift into the front plank. Do not touch your knees down or relax in this position although beginners may do this from their knees.

Then rotate into a side plank on the other side. In this side plank position, with your bottom hip up and body in a nice straight line, lift your top arm and leg up. Do not rotate toward the ground or rotate your leg way open as you lift.

Lower back down and rotate back into the front plank before switching to the other side.
