Instructions: How To

Enhancing core strength and lateral stability, the TRX Side Plank focuses on the obliques. The inclusion of TRX straps introduces an instability challenge, which elevates the exercise's difficulty and effectiveness, providing a robust workout for the core muscles.

  1. Lie on your right side with your right elbow flexed to 90 degrees and directly underneath your shoulder with your legs extended.
  2. Position the TRX so that the handles are 1-2’ above the ground with the TRX anchor overtop of your feet.
  3. Lift your legs to place both feet into the handle straps with your left foot in front of your right foot.
  4. Lift your hips and brace your core to make a straight alignment from your shoulders to your heels and hold for an allotted time.
