- Lie on the ground on your right side with legs stacked, right arm on ground and left arm on top of left leg.
- Keeping abs pulled in, reach left hand down as if going to touch ankle (you'll move only slightly off the floor), feeling the contraction along your side.
- Slowly lower back down, using your obliques and abs to provide resistance. Do 8 reps; switch sides and repeat.
Challenge yourself: Lift your legs slightly as you reach toward ankles.
