Side Plank Pose (Vasisthasana)

This side plank is a great exercise for strengthening the oblique abdominal muscles, which don’t get worked during ab exercises such as crunches. You will hold your body on your side in a straight position supported only by one arm and the side of one foot.

There are a lot of ways to modify your side plank. Some Variations offer more support for beginners as you build strength or to accommodate injuries. Others incorporate moves that make this balancing pose even more challenging for people who want to amp it up.
