Exercise: "Medicine Ball Side Planks" by Sruthan Wants Abs


More info / tips / proper technique:

Medicine Ball side planks are a great isometric (static/non-moving) exercise that work the oblique abs and the whole abdominal wall. This is a helpful exercise to work the muscles in a way that dynamic motion exercises don't, so it can be a very important part of your abs routine.

Start by lying on your side and and leaning on your lower arm, bent at the elbow, on the exercise ball slightly beneath your elbow. You can cross your ankles if it feels more comfortable or stable, and place your top arm along your side or on your top hip.

Use you abs to lift your hips so that your body forms a straight line from feet to head while your lower arm is balancing on the ball. Hold this position for 30-90 seconds, and repeat on the opposite side.
