5 Exercises you can do at HOME Exercise #2

Exercise #2 Side Plank

Benefits

The core is considered to be made up of the many muscles that wrap around the waist (even the legs) not just the ‘6-pack’. This exercise is definitely one of the underrated moves and also contributes to improved posture and the slim looking waist perfect for completing the summer look.

Progressions

To make things more challenging add movement/weight to the side plank.

– movement with arms/legs (countless variations)

– added dumbbell in free hand or even ankle weights

Progressions

To make things more challenging add movement/weight to the plank.

– movement with arms/legs (countless variations)

– added weight plate on back
