Plank Hip Extension

Core Strengthening Exercise

Physical Therapy Videos Put Together By Real Orthopedic Specialists To Help You Recover And Stay Injury-Free.

Strengthen the muscles that bend and extend you at the waist, straighten your knee and extend your hip.

Back pain is a common complaint with many origins. The Bauerfeind LumboTrain and LumboTrain Lady help to support the low back and control the stresses that produce pain.


Begin this exercise in the plank position, supported on either your forearms or on hands below extended elbows. If properly positioned, a straight line can be drawn through your ankles, knees, hips and shoulders.

With your knees straight and your toes pointed downwards, alternately lift a foot up off of the floor until the leg becomes parallel, or slightly above parallel, with the floor. Hold briefly at the top of each movement.

Perform all movements in a controlled fashion. Relax and repeat as your ability allows.
