Overview

The Copenhagen plank is an advanced version of the side plank performed with one foot on a bench and the other foot hovering under it. This exercise targets the same muscles as the side plank, including the obliques, shoulders, and lateral hips, but places extra emphasis on the adductors and is more difficult than side planks on the floor. Most lifters will need to progress to this version after mastering the basic side plank or feet-elevated side plank first.
