Plank Hip Dips Instructions
1. Start in a low plank position with your body in a straight line, your elbows bent and under your shoulders, and your feet hip-width apart.
2. Rotate your hips to the right and dip your body almost to the floor.
3. Return to the starting position and repeat on the left side. Keep alternating sides until the set is complete.
Proper Form And Breathing Pattern
Keep your core engaged at all times, push your belly button in toward your spine and breathe slowly and deeply. Maintain your head and neck relaxed and dip your body as low as you can without losing your form.
From the Shop
The plank hip dips is a modified version of the elbow plank with an additional hip rotation, that further engages your core. This exercise strengthens your abs, obliques, and lower back, and helps to trim down your waist. It also enhances the flexibility of your spine and can help improve your balance, stability, and posture.
