Side Plank

This is the core move you want to get those obliques, the muscles on your sides. Like a regular plank, you get the most out of a side plank when you keep tight form — no drooping or piking. To get into the position, start in a regular plank, then rotate your body sideways, so you're balanced on the side of one foot and one forearm. Stay there for 30 seconds, then switch sides.
