Stomach Workout with Oblique Exercises
Oblique Exercise #1: Double Knees to the Side
While lying on the floor, brace yourself with your arms. While keeping your feet in the air, simple let your knees rotate from side to side.
Perform 5-15 repetitions on each side. Rest for 30-60 seconds and then do a second set of 5-15.
Oblique Exercise #2: Side Planks
The side plank is an isometric oblique exercise. You can do it from your feet or from your knees-- it's more challenging from the feet. You can also balance on your elbow or your hand to change the feeling of the exercise.
Pick the appropriate side plank for your ability and perform 10-60 seconds on each side. Rest 30 seconds and do 2 sets on each side.
Oblique Exercise #3: Bicycle Crunches
Bicycle crunches work the entire stomach area, but when you add the rotation motion you increase the work in the obliques.
Perform 15-25 on each side. Rest for 30-60 seconds and repeat a second set.
Go at your own pace, and don't be frustrated if you have a hard time getting through the entire workout the first time. If you want to create a different oblique workout, simply pick other your favorite oblique exercises and make up your own workout.
Challenge yourself and Have Fun!
