Exercise of the Week: Push-Up Side Plank

As you may know, at PCS we’re rather fond of combination exercises (who could forget one of our favorites, the killer ExcelCord Plank Leg Lift?). Today’s exercise combines two simple exercises into one slightly more complicated and much more difficult (and effective!) workout. Start in push-up position with your core tight. Perform one push-up. Once you return to your starting position, rotate to the side so your left arm is raised to the ceiling and your core is facing the side wall. Your feet should be staggered with the left foot slightly in front of the right. Hold for two seconds before returning to the starting position and performing another push-up. Repeat on the opposite side. This is one rep. Start with one set of four reps and work your way up to two sets of eight reps.
