Anyone feeling a little weighed down from the holiday sweets yet? Don't let the holidays ruin your fitness goals, and detour you away from your gym regimen. You got this girl!
If you follow me on snapchat then you'll see my daily workout snap, which usually consists of working on my abs and running. I've said time and time again, but abdominal exercises are my all time favorite. I love doing side arm planks to work the obliques, and creating different variations to target more of the abdominal wall. Let us dive into the details...
What you will need: Just yourself
Primary targeted muscles: Abs & Obliques
Secondary targeted muscles: Shoulder, Glutes, and Quads
Modification for wrist injury: Drop down to forearm
Start by in the side arm plank position by having supporting wrist under shoulder, and hips stacked. Press your hips up as high as you can. Extend your other arm reaching to the ceiling.
Reach the arm down for the supporting oblique, creating a twisting movement in the waist. Repeat again. You want to perform the exercise 15 reps on each side for 4 sets.
While this exercise may seem easy, and almost elementary, it's super effective. Ahhhh....the burn is so good!
