3 Exercises Which Workout Your Obliques
#3 Side Plank
A side plank is one of the most effective oblique workouts and this is because the way a side plank targets your obliques almost no other exercise does. Also, all these exercises are extremely easy to do and can be done without absolutely any equipment.
In a side plank, you hold your body up as you do in a normal plank but only on one side. Thus lie down to one side and then lift yourself up with all your weight on one arm. Your elbow should be carrying your weight. This is to avoid injuries and make the exercise more intense.
One should do the side plank for close to a minute and keep increasing it as the fitness levels increase. If you want to add more variations within a side plank there are many which will work out your obliques in the most dynamic ways.
Like a normal plank, a side plank has many variations. One side variation is to lift up your body in the position of a side plank.
Then lower your obliques but not to touch the floor. Do this for five seconds and then come back into the plank position. Do this on both sides and you'll see the results soon.
