Side Plank

• Lie on side with elbow tucked under body
• Rise into side plank position so only elbow and side of foot touch ground
• Hold for specified time; switch sides

Time: 30 seconds, each side
Coaching Points: Keep body as straight as possible // Pull shoulders back // Keep core tight // Thrust upper hip toward ceiling
Dr. Moreau: He’s just [building] core endurance with the Side Plank. A hockey player’s core endurance is good for injury prevention to protect his spine.
