Plank and Rotate

Twisting in a plank position fires up the core and works those love handles.

  • Begin in a plank position holding a five-pound dumbbell in each hand, keeping your wrists stiff to protect the joints. Open your feet a little wider than hip distance.
  • Lift your left hand to the ceiling, twisting through your entire torso. Your pelvis will rotate, but keep it level.
  • Bring your left hand back to the floor, and repeat this action on the other side to complete one rep.
  • Do 10 to 15 reps to complete a set.

Use five- to eight-pound dumbbells.
