Side Crunch


Side Crunch: Side crunches are a great way to target those obliques. As you crunch up, make sure that you are curling from your stomach, rather than your shoulders. For more pointers, click here!
  • Beginner: 3 sets of 10 per side
  • Advanced: 3 sets of 15 per side
  • Why? This move works your obliques, upper and lower abs.

Move Targets: Obliques


Step 1: Start by lying on the floor face up with your knees together and bent at a 90-­degree angle. Without moving your upper body, lower your knees to the right side so that they’re touching the floor. Place your fingers behind your head.
Step 2: Raise your shoulders toward your hips, pause for one second, and then take two seconds to lower your upper body back to the starting position. Perform this move for 30 seconds and then switch your legs to the other side for an additional 30 seconds.
