Exercise for the week to work on your abs
The Side Plank exercise works wonders for your abs, because you are mostly using your core to stabilize your body since your are holding your weight on one side of your body during this workout.
What to do:
- Lie on your left side with your elbow directly beneath your shoulder and legs stacked on top of one another. Place your right hand on your left shoulder or your right hip.
- Lift your hips off the floor until you’re balancing on your forearm and feet so that your body forms a diagonal line.
- Switch sides and repeat
For How Long:
For a good workout, it is best to hold for 30 to 45 seconds to really feel the effect on your abs. Here is an example of how this exercise looks like.
