Core Stability Exercise – Side Bridges
Peter is demonstrating the half plank side bridge position. Up on the knees, feet together, knees together and holding. This is a test of maximum endurance. Peter is going to hold the hips up until he can’t hold them anymore. Both sides will be done.
The progression from here is to come up on to straight legs, off the ankles for the full plank; from here Peter can take the hand up over hip, and hold. Once again it is a test of maximum exhaustion and endurance. You are holding as long as you can until the hips start to collapse to the floor. That is a side plank.
