On THIS post, we tackled side planks and all its benefits.
Today I will not repeat myself that’s for sure but I will tell you for free that if you add weights to your side planks , It is an added advantage because it makes you stronger quicker and if your target is weight loss, then you will always be a step ahead because it gives you the result you want to see quicker, and did I mention it is an added advantage because it works your arms too at the same time? If you didn’t know , well now you know!( I’ve always wanted to say that)
So to perform this excercise, you drop down into a normal side plank position only this time you will be holding a dumbell
Heads up: You might want to start with lighter weights if you are not used to it….I Fell face flat severally.Just sayin’.
Then slowly curve the dumbell to your underarm ( just realised i might have ‘mis-explained’ ~ if there is such a word, which I am 100% sure there isn’t)
But you get the picture. (for better illustration , see video on my instagram)
Then get back up and repeat. Go as long as you can go because we both know you are bad ass, just dont overdo it
Stay beautiful , stay healthy , stay con-fit-dent.
