    How to Perform the Side Plank on Stability Ball (Advanced Progression)

    In today’s post, I want to share with you an advanced progression of the side plank that challenges both core and shoulder stability. All you need for this side plank variation is a stability ball and an already STRONG core. Note: This variation is very challenging and should only be performed by more advanced athlete’s or individual’s. People with shoulder problems, also might want to consider avoiding this.

    Coaching Cues

    • Keep a subtle brace and contraction through abdominal wall and elbow/forearm
    • Squeeze the glutes in order to help keep a neutral spine
    • Keep the neck and spine in a good neutral alignment
    • Place the top shoulder/hand on the opposite shoulder or hip
    • Place the top foot out in front of the bottom foot

    After assuming into the side plank position onto the stability, try and hold the position for about 15-30 seconds. It’s guaranteed to be a challenge, but if you can hold this position for about 15-30 seconds, this is a great indication that you have superb spinal stability 😉

    Enjoy,
