Brabham points to side planks as an ideal exercise because they’re easy to perform, require no equipment, and can be done practically anywhere. Plus, they work all the stabilizing muscles of the core, including those of the supporting shoulder. To perform the exercise correctly, lie on your side and support your body with the forearm closest to the floor. Tighten your abs and keep your body stiff as you raise your hips off the ground so your body forms a straight, diagonal line from heels to head. Brabham says to hold the position for a minimum of 10 seconds, but to maintain the static hold for as long as you can with perfect form. Complete two to five sets.
