How to Hip Raise Plank

Starting Position

1. Begin by lying flat on your back on an exercise mat.

2. Bend your knees and place your feet flat on the floor, hip-width apart.

3. Place your hands directly beneath your shoulders, palms facing down.

4. Engage your core and press your lower back into the floor.

Proper Form

1. Push through your feet and lift your hips off the floor until your body forms a straight line from your shoulders to your knees.

2. Hold this position for a few seconds, being sure not to arch your back or let your hips dip towards the floor.

3. Slowly lower your hips back to the floor.

Breathing Technique

1. Exhale as you push your hips up and inhale as you lower them back to the floor.


1. Make sure to keep your core engaged throughout the exercise and your back straight.

2. Make sure to not let your hips dip towards the floor as you hold the position.

3. Do not push yourself too hard and always listen to your body. If you experience any pain, stop the exercise immediately.
