Yes, you read right, you can achieve rock hard abs, thanks to the good old plank. If we’re honest, planks are the one exercise we love to hate, but they deliver some serious results (if done right).
Your first attempt at side plank may involve a lot of wobbling, but that’s ok because we all need to start somewhere. Wobbles (muscle shaking) mean you’re using muscles you haven’t targeted before, but with practice these muscles become stronger, which means no more wobbles.
And once you mastered the side plank, then you can challenge yourself further by tackling a few different variations.
But, there is one variation that packs a serious punch and it’s the side plank with leg extended (pictured in the images). As much as your balance is tested in this pose, it all comes down to is focus and core strength. And with persistence, this too can become a very simple move.
Try 5 sets on each leg for the best results
