Side plank strengthens the obliques, while the abdominals work to stabilize the entire body.
How to do it: Assume a pushup position, keeping your arms straight and palms flat on the floor. Raise your left arm to reach up toward the ceiling as you shift your weight onto your right arm and the outside of your right foot. Rest your left foot on top of your right foot so that it does not touch the ground. Keeping your wrist, elbow, and shoulder in one straight line, open your chest as you look toward the ceiling. With each breath, contract your abs and breathe deeper into the posture. Hold for 30 seconds.
