Check out Women's Health's FitGIF Friday every week for fun and challenging new moves to make your sweat sesh really count.

Here's this week's exercise:

Lateral plank foot tap: A traditional plank works your abs like crazy, but doesn't show your obliques much love.

That's where a foot tap comes in handy—by tapping it out, you're cinching your waist and strengthening your core.

Plus, an active move always burns more calories than a stationary one.
