Plank and Rotate

No arm or core workout would be complete without the mighty plank. Twisting in this classic position fires up the core and works those love handles.

  • Begin in a plank position holding a five-pound dumbbell in each hand, keeping your wrists stiff to protect the joints. Open your feet a little wider than hip distance.
  • Lift your left hand to the ceiling, twisting through your entire torso — keep the motion smooth and controlled. Your pelvis will rotate, but keep it level without letting it raise or drop.
  • Bring your left hand back to the floor, and repeat this action on the other side to complete one rep.
  • Continue alternating sides for one minute.
