Instructions: How To

Integrating the core-strengthening benefits of a side plank with the back and arm engagement of a row, this challenging variation uses a loop band to add resistance. It targets the obliques, shoulders, and upper back, enhancing core stability and upper body strength in a single movement.

  1. Get on the ground.
  2. Lie on your side.
  3. Anchor a loop band to something at your top shoulder's height.
  4. Facing the anchor point, grip the loop band with your top hand.
  5. Adjust the tension on the band by moving closer or farther from the anchor point.
  6. Engage your core, raise your hips off the ground and press your lower forearm and palm into the ground.
  7. You should be holding the loop band in a side plank position.
  8. Keep your core engaged, and back straight to maintain proper form and posture.
  9. Engage your back, biceps and rear shoulder to pull your elbow back to your side.
  10. Hold this position for a moment before starting another rep.
  11. Switch sides.
