Side-Elbow Plank With a Twist
Adding a twist to a side plank challenges your balance, works your obliques, and tones your shoulders!
- Come into a side-elbow plank on your right side, with your feet stacked one on top of the other. Keep your weight on your right elbow with your fingers reaching away from your body.
- Place your left arm behind your head and inhale to prepare.
- Exhale and pull your navel to your spine, engaging your deep abs. Rotate your left ribcage toward the floor. Stay there for a second, and deepen your abdominal connection by pulling your navel in toward your spine even more.
- Return to the starting position. Repeat seven more times for a total of eight reps, then switch sides. Repeat the series again on your left side.
