Plank Leg Lift

Plank Leg Lift using short loop booty band

Absolutely not one of the easiest exercises but one that will work your whole body.

If you're looking for an all-rounder, this is it. The Plank Leg Lift.

It incorporates the classic ab exercise, The Plank, with a resisted leg lift to target your glutes.

There are some variations to this move, with the positioning of the band or the type of plank you perform.

👉 Using your short band wrap it around your legs, either just above your knees or around your ankles.

👉 Come into a plank position, again either on your elbows or in a high plank using just your hands.

👉 Aim to keep your body in a straight line, without arching your back or letting your bum fall or rise too high. If your form starts to fail, take a break.

👉 Keep your eyes to the ground, focusing on a spot between your hands, to prevent unnecessary strain on your neck and forcing your back to arch.

👉 Engage your core by pulling your belly button up towards the ceiling.

👉 Slowly lift one heel, keeping your leg straight, stretching the band as you do it.

👉 Lift your leg as high as you can before slowly lowering and repeating on the other leg.

Aim for 3 sets of 8-12 reps, on their own or as part of a circuit.

Good luck!
