Side Plank Instructions

This body weight exercise is a variation of the plank exercise and also targets your abs. It’s much more difficult than it looks.

It’s no secret that six pack abs are one of the most coveted muscle groups when it comes to a man’s physique. Movie stars have them and women crave them – yet, it is one of the more challenging things to accomplish. Some might even say that a man’s abs are a barometer for how fit he really is. If you’re looking to get six pack abs, you’ve come to the right place. With a little bit of training and the right diet (after all, abs are made in the kitchen – not in the gym), you’ll have washboard abs in no time.

To Perform The Side Plank

  1. Lay on one side of your body with your legs straight and your forearm perpendicular to your body in front of you.
  2. Drawing your abs in, slowly raise yourself up so you are balanced on your feet and your forearm.
  3. Hold this position for a predetermined amount of time (30 – 90 seconds) and slowly return back to the starting position.
