How to execute a plank twist

The plank twist is a core exercise that involves holding a plank position while rotating your hips and torso.

To perform the plank twist, start in a high plank position with your hands directly under your shoulders and your body in a straight line.

Engage your core muscles and twist your hips to the right, bringing your right knee towards your left elbow.

Return to the starting position and repeat on the other side, twisting your hips to the left and bringing your left knee towards your right elbow.


Incorporating the plank twist into your fitness routine can help strengthen your core muscles, including your abs and obliques.

This exercise can also improve your balance, stability, and overall body control.

To maximize the benefits of the plank twist, aim to perform 2-3 sets of 10-15 reps on each side, 2-3 times per week.
