Crossed Extended Side Plank (Utthita vashistasana variation) :
-Start in a normal plank pose.
-Roll onto the left hand and literally swivel your feet to the side so that your right foot is in front of your left foot, outer edge of left foot on floor and inner edge of right foot on floor. -As you inhale reach your arm alongside your ear and lift your hips up.
-Come back to a plank pose on an inhale and roll to the other side.
Great for lengthening the side body & ITB, strengthening obliques, back, and arms.
