How to Do Side Plank Crunches

Tone Up Your Waist With This Plank Variation

Combine your standard crunches with side plank into one move that will challenge your balance, tone up your waist, and strengthen your core. Start incorporating this move into your regular workout routine to say goodbye to pesky love handles and hello to toned-up sides and a chiseled tummy.

  • Begin in a side elbow plank with your left elbow down and your right hand behind your head.
  • Keeping your torso stable and your waist lifted, bring your right leg up toward your shoulder to lightly tap your right elbow.
  • Lengthen your right leg back to the starting position to complete one rep.
  • Do 10 reps on each side to complete a set. Do three complete sets.
