SIDE HIP RAISES

Preparation

Set resistance level to maximum. Attach the strap. Adjust the height of the belt to mid-shin level.

Starting Position

Place the lower foot into the loop; the other rests on top. The belt hangs vertically; i.e. the foot is under the grip rod. In a support position on your lower arm, maintain your body tension.

Execution

Lift the hips evenly until the entire body is suspended in a side plank position. Ankle, hip and head are all aligned. Keep your body tensed and then lower the hip again. Move slowly, without swinging.

Hint

Start off close to the floor and ensure your body is stable. Moving your feet closer to the column while in the belt makes the exercise more challenging. Always perform the exercise on both sides.

Variants

More challenging: extend the top arm up and look towards the ceiling.

Warning

Attach the blocker (on maximum level).
