7. Lay on your back side on the floor.
(Can we use like this? Do we have to delete 'side'?)

    First, learn "lie" versus "lay".

    "stomachs" and "bellies" mean the same thing. "Belly" is informal and not as polite.

    No, you do not have to delete 'side". We do say "left side", etc. "Backside" usually means one's buttocks, though. "Back" and "front" don't require "side", but it's not wrong.
