Advance core & hip strength
Advanced core & hip strength is somewhat redundant because the hip muscles are part of the core. The most functional way to perform stability exercises for any muscle group is in the standing position. However, the side plank position offers multiple stabilizing components which makes it a great exercise to integrate into any strength program. The side plank adductor exercise helps improve stability in the hip adductors, shoulder, lats and obliques. The side plank adductor exercise can be used by any and all athletes to help prevent injury and improve stability.
