ELBOW SIDE PLANK DIPS⎮ Side Plank Exercise Variation Tutorial ⎮ PLANKMAS DAY 6
PLANKMAS DAY 6
Today’s video features my personal favorite side plank variation: the side plank dip! The side plank dip exercise is a side plank variation that not only works your core but also your gluteus medius and shoulders!
If you’re a beginner and you want to strengthen your core with ab exercises, try the side plank dip on the knees! It’s a great side plank exercise for beginners and you’ll still get all the benefits of core exercises. If you still find the elbow side plank dip exercise on the knees too difficult, I also did a tutorial on the regular side plank (both on the toes and on the knees) and that might be a great place to start to get the technique right before you start “dipping”. You can fin that elbow side plank tutorial right here.
WHAT IS PLANKMAS?
The main Plankmas Challenge is on my Instagram and I hope you’ll go check it out. It’s going to be a lot of fun! We’re doing planks and adding +15 seconds of plank time every single day for 24 days!
On YouTube, Plankmas means that I’m uploading 24 plank variation tutorials (!), one for every day until Christmas. You can find the full PLANKMAS 2019 playlist here. I’m adding a new video to the playlist every day!
In this sixth video in the series, I’m doing an elbow side plank dips exercise tutorial. My goal with the video is to show you how to do side plank dips correctly, so we can safely do 24 days of planks without getting any injuries! Over the next 18 days, I’ll keep giving you daily uploads of some of my favorite plank variations and side plank variations so you can mix it up and have fun with the challenge!
