SIDE PLANK – Your elbow should be directly below your shoulder. Stack your legs and hips on top of each other and rise up so that your body is straight from head to feet. Keep hips raised. Engage core. The exercise can be made easier by raising up from your knees rather than your toes. For this version knees should be bent at 90 degrees.
