Oblique crunch

27 Jul 2009
Obliques (side abs)

Hit your abs from the side to target the obliques, the muscles that frame your six-pack.

  • Lie on your side with your arm in front and bend your knees.
  • Touch your fingers to your temples.
  • Use your side abs to crunch up sideways.
  • Hold for a second at the top of the move, then lower slowly back to the start.
