How to Do Twist in the High Plank

The twist in the high plank should begin with a good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop the twist in the high plank.


Beginning Twist in the High Plank

1. Begin in a standard side plank stance.

2. Raise your upper arm straight up in the air.

3. Then, as you thread your top arm through the area beneath you, lower your arm and rotate your core. When your shoulders are almost parallel to the floor, come to a halt.

4. Return to the beginning position by unthreading your arm.

5. Rep on one side for 10 to 15 reps, then switch sides.

6. If you're a beginner, start with one set each side and work your way up to three sets per side as your strength improves.


Twist in the High Plank Movement

1. Start in a pushup position and be sure to keep your body straight and your head in line with your body facing the ground.

2. From here you are going to rotate your body and hand so that one is on the ground, and the other is pointing straight up towards the ceiling.

3. Return to the starting push up position and repeat with the opposite side.
