1Minna Lessig’s Side Plank
Fitness guru and former Ms. Fitness USA Minna Lessig recommends the side plank for a challenging workout that targets your core, plus your shoulders and arms.
1.Start from push-up position. Tighten abs.
2.Bring your right hand to the center, halfway between its starting position and your left hand.
3.Turn your body to the left. Shift weight from toes to the outer side of your right foot, stacking your left foot on top of your right.
4.Lift your left arm off floor.
5.Extend your left arm toward ceiling in line with your shoulders. Your body should form one, straight line from head to feet, sideways.
6.Look straight. Hold position for 10-30 seconds. Repeat 2-3 times.
7.Repeat on other side.
