How to Do a Side Plank with Hip Lift

Learn how to do a side plank with hip lift from Warrior Fitness Boot Camp creators Ruben Belliard and Alex Fell in this Howcast workout video.


Hi. I'm Ruben Belliard from Warrior Fitness Boot Camp her in New York City, and today we're going to go over how to do a side plank with a hip lift. All right. It's very simple. You start from the regular side plank position. I'm going to get down with my forearm down, palm down. Make sure my shoulder is right over my elbow. Then I'm going to pop up. All right. Put that hand up nice and high to the sky. Now all I'm going to do, bring my hip down. I don't want my hip to touch the floor. Just try to get it about an inch off the floor. Then right back to the side plank.

I want that straight line from my ankle all the way to my shoulder. So we can just start with ten reps, pause, down, pause. And you really feel it working your oblique section. You know when we do those hip lifts, it really activates that oblique, and you really have to, it's an advanced move, and you really want to focus on just that oblique. So you can start off with just doing, you know, five reps, ten reps. And you'll eventually, just like anything else, you build up the endurance and strength, and you can, you know, do a few rounds of 15 or 20. And that's how you do a side plank with a hip lift.
