This is an awesome exercise. I've been playing with it. You do a push up and press off one side into a side plank.  Go to about 4:00.

So much core and control.

I love the side plank. I have clients do it w/ their feet in the TRX to challenge them.  It's hard to push up off the push up into the side plank--I tend to push too far and fall over.

Wow! I am going to have to give it a try. I have to be very careful with anything plank as even the slightest twist in my elbow and I'll suffer for weeks. The insanity section we are doing right now involves a ton of plank moves and it is killing me.

Woh!  That entire video is awesome!  That side plank is something we do in yoga...try bending your lifted extend upping the top of your foot in your hand and extending back.  The push-up TO the side plank looks challenging.  I will have to try that!  Cores on fire!!!
