Side Plank W Rotation

from Tim Skafidas

Directions
Lying on a mat on your side, stack your top foot in front of your back, then tuck your elbow directly under your shoulder. Using pressure on a friction like surface (not a hardwood floor) lift your hips to maximum height, keep your spine neutral, and rotate your shoulder down reaching under your body. Breathe out while rotating up. Weights can be added to intensify this exercise. This exercise can be done super slow as well.
Helpful tips and Tricks
Make sure your elbow does not drift out - keep it directly under your shoulder. Use a friction rich surface for your feet so they don't move.
