Plank Hip External Rotation – Core/Hip Cohesive Stability

Give this move a try to improve core and hip co-activation! 

This will improve control, stability, and balance in your dance.

Artistic Athletes have to make a lot of different body parts work together, but the hips and lower back are of utmost importance! This move will help make sure they work in harmony. We’d love you to share a video trying it out and tag us!

  • Start in a plank position, then brind one foot up to the inside of your knee or upper shin. Focus on a flat lower back, ribs and pelvis going towards each other, and try not to allow lower back arching. From here, only move the lifted leg, trying to bring the knee to the sky, without rotating the whole pelvis. Pause, then return to the start. You can add an ankle weight on the knee for further challenge.

Give it a try & let us know what you think below.

Move It Monday will feature a new movement, for all fitness levels, to help improve your dance performance and safety.
