The Copenhagen Side Plank is a great side plank variation that has the added benefit of helping to strengthen the groin muscles.
In our Copenhagen Side Plank progression, we typically start with a Short Level Copenhagen Side Plank, then progress to a Long Level Copenhagen Side Plank, and then go to a Copenhagen Side Plank with Hip Flexor Hold.
For most people, that is as far as we go. However, sometimes we have athletes or clients that can handle more.
Enter the Copenhagen Side Plank with Banded Hip Flexion.
This is an extremely challenging progression that challenges anti-lateral flexion, groin strength, and hip flexion, checking a lot of boxes at once.
Give this a try if you have athletes or clients that are capable, but remember this is far from a day 1 exercise.
