8. Side plank

3 sets / 30-second hold

Lie on your side with your bottom elbow on a Bosu ball and with your feet staggered on the ground. Your top foot should be in front of your bottom foot. Raise your hips so that they're off the ground and your body forms a straight line from your ankles to your shoulders. Hold, return to starting position.
