Balancing Star

Why it works: This variation of Side Plank is a total-body move. Each micromovement you make to stay balanced on your hand and foot really works your upper body and core.

Get more out of it: Bend your upper leg and grab your big toe with the first two fingers and thumb of your upper hand. Work on straightening your leg, which will not only be more challenging for your bottom arm (especially your shoulder), but it'll also increase flexibility in your hamstring, which may not make you look better naked, but it'll sure allow you to be more experimental in the bedroom.
