Movement

Plank With Hip Extension Movement

1. Start off in a plank position.

2. To get there, position yourself as though you're preparing to do a pushup. Bend your elbows so that they form 90 degree angles and hold yourself up by your forearms.

3. Instead of keeping both toes on the ground, lift up with one leg and keep it off of the ground a couple of inches.

4. While you hold the plank, continuously move this leg side-to-side in a slow, controlled movement.

Benefits

Plank With Hip Extension Benefits

Hip extension exercises are vital since the glutes and hamstrings, which make up your hip extensor muscles, are significant movers in your body. Glute strength is important for pelvic alignment and lower back support. Running, walking, and jumping are all made easier with strong hamstrings.
