Side Arrow Pull
The Jess Fonda
The Move: Plank Twist
How to: Sit down on the floor with your legs bent at the knees and feet off the floor. Elevate your upper body so that it creates a V shape with your thighs. Grab a free weight and hold it in your hands. Twist your torso to one side, bringing the weight to the side as you go. Now move to the opposite side performing the same techniques you applied to the other side.
The Move: Side Plank Hip Lift
How to: Start in a side plank position, with your shoulder over your elbow and your body in a straight line. Bring your hip down without letting it touch the floor, and then bring it back up to the side plank position. Repeat and switch sides.
