Review: Side Bridge

Aug 22, 2013 6:24 PM: I really like the side bridge and the plank. For some reason they are easy for me, and I'm excited to read how superior they are to the standard crunch.

Oct 24, 2012 1:42 AM: Great exercise if you do it with placing 20kg Dumbell on your side abs, and try to raise it, while gently holding dumbell with other / free arm. I do it regulary for abs and really hurts every next morning. Try it with dumbell !
