Easy Exercise of the Week: Side Planks

A very effective ab cruncher.


  • Turn onto your right side with your legs extended and your feet and hips resting on the ground and stacked on top of each other.
  • Place your right elbow directly under your shoulder to prop up your torso, and align your head with your spine.
  • Gently contract your core and lift your hips and knees off the floor; this strengthens your sides and deep ab muscles.
  • Hold for 10 to 30 seconds, gradually working up to a minute, and return to the starting position. Roll onto the other side and repeat.
