1Elbow Plank w/ Leg Lift
Of course, the plank is a brilliant (but painful) exercise for the core but you can engage your outer thighs by adding a leg lift. As long as the pelvis is kept high, you will feel the benefit when lifting the top leg. If you haven’t done a side plank before, you simply place one elbow on the floor before then extending both legs out so your body makes a ‘plank’. Since you will be incorporating leg lifts, one side will hold your weight whilst the other lifts. Although it may be tempting, don’t allow yourself to sink into the resting shoulder.
