Side Elbow Plank With a Twist
Come into a side plank on your right side, with your feet stacked one on top of the other and your weight on your right elbow with your fingers reaching away from your body.
Place your left arm behind your head, and inhale to prepare.
Exhale and pull your navel to your spine to engage your deep abs and rotate your left ribcage toward the floor. Stay there for a second and deepen your abdominal connection pulling your navel in toward your spine even more.
Return to starting position and repeat seven more times for a total of eight reps, then switch sides. Repeat series again on both sides.
This move works the obliques and helps tone the love handles.
