I love a good plank exercise. I’ve cranked out this do-anywhere move while playing with my 13-month-old, during TV commercial breaks, while dinner is cooking, etc. 

This variation on the side plank is a total body torcher that targets your shoulders, waist, abs, back, outer thighs and glute meds (the often underworked muscle on the side of the pelvis that helps stabilize your hip joint).


#TotalBodyThursday: Side Plank Leg Lift 
Place your right elbow on the ground. Extend both legs out so that your body is in one straight line, balancing on the outside edge of your right foot. Flex both feet, and reach your left hand to the ceiling. Keeping your spine lengthened and your abs engaged, lift your left leg up just higher than your top hip. Then slowly lower it back to your bottom leg. Keep your waist up and lifted, and don't sink into your bottom shoulder. Do three sets of 15 repetitions on each side.


I am trying to get back in shape after years of having kids and letting myself go. The side plank would be a great goal for me to set for myself. I am currently working on running and sit up while doing some yoga. But that looks so amazing and I can't wait until I get to that point.
