4. Side Plank

Side Plank

Now that you are toning your upper and lower abs, you can’t forget about your obliques on the sides of your body! This move will tone up those dreaded β€œlove handles” that some people struggle with, especially if paired with some cardio. To do this yoga pose, get into plank pose by going on your hands and knees, and lifting your body into a straight line.

Then, turn to the side, lifting one arm into the air and stacking your feet on top of each other. You can either perform this on your hand or forearm, just like plank. Try to keep your body in a straight line, keeping your side squeezed and lifted. Repeat with the other side, holding as long as possible. You can vary this pose by lifting the top leg up and grabbing it with your hand that isn’t on the ground.
