Push Up to Side Plank

The push-up to side plank is an upper-body and core-focused exercise combining two popular bodyweight movements. It targets the chest, triceps, and shoulders with the push-up, and the obliques and hip external rotator muscles with the side plank. It can be performed as part of a dynamic warm-up or any bodyweight strength-training workout.


  1. Strengthens the chest, triceps, shoulders, and core
  2. Strengthens the abdominals, mainly targeting the obliques
