16. Plank Abs Exercises – Forearm Side Plank Hip Dip

Start in a forearm side plank by propping your body up on your right forearm, with your elbow stacked underneath your shoulder and your hand in front of your body. Extend your legs and stack your left foot on top of your right, and then squeeze your abs and glutes to lift your hips off the floor.

Extend your left arm overhead or place it on your left hip. Your shoulders, hips, and feet should all be in a straight line.
Slowly dip your hips toward the floor, keeping your core tight and your back flat. Then, lift your hips back up. This is 1 rep.
Do all your reps on one side and then repeat on the other side.

Place your right arm behind your head, with your elbow bent and pointing up toward the ceiling. This is the starting position.
