If you’ve been following Stella’s daily exercises since the start of January, you must be becoming a master of the moves by now.
If you’re just a beginner, don’t worry. Today’s exercise can be done in two different ways to suit whatever level of fitness you feel you are at.
We bring you the Side Plank Reach.
This exercise is good for your core and your oblique muscles (down your sides). It can be performed on the knees or your toes if you’re a little bit stronger in the core.
Take your feet across the back. Lift your hips up high, taking your shoulder over your elbow.
Put your hand up, rotate and reach through.
If you need to drop your knee to the floor, keep the hips high and perform the same reach.
Do five of these on each side and perform three in each set – as demonstrated by fitness guru Stella.
Remember to ensure you do a warm-up before the exercise and combine it with other moves to make a well-rounded workout.
You could try the Sumo-squat, washing machine twist or Stella’s Superman Pointer!
